Default PIQ rejections

these shot were rejected because of poor image quality. I don't see any issues with them.

I'm would have to agree, all 3 look very grainy on my monitor anyway,
1, Also appears overexposed, and not level.
2, appears to soft/undersharpened.
3, appears to soft/undersharpened.

Just my opinion I'm sure more qualified and also add to this.

On my monitor all three appear to be low in contrast.

When something is low in contrast, is it possible to brighten it a little. I don't want to brighten it too much.

I will be honest that I don't see the lowness in contrast.

No... do not brighten! Raise the amount of contrast.

Here is another shot that I took. Not sure if this one would get in, but its nice to show people getting off the train. Contrast seems fine to me.

All of the shots seem to have a general murkiness to them, like they were all taken through a windshield. They all have low contrast as previously mentioned and could use some sharpening.

Joe, I don't think that sharpening will help here because it seems quite sharp already to my eyes. I'd go for an S-shaped curve like this instead to enhance contrast, as everybody had said before (for pic #2):
