Default Little to much?

Ok guys. I got a rejected photo....

Do I need to bump up the color or bump it down?

Color is a tad strong - but it looks good. Maybe the engine just hasn't had time to fade yet. The photo needs a kick or two of sharpening. Otherwise, nice shot. The shadow that hits the train is not distracting and doesn't take much of anything away from the shot.

It looks a little to red to me. "Auto colour correct" in photoshop (Elements 5) made it too green, but trying the colour cast correction on the pod on the roof produced the attached which looks more natural to me.

I disagree about the shadows. I think you could fix the color, shrpen the shot as needed and then get rejected for distracting shadows. On my own shots, if there is a shadow on the lead loco, I personal collection it.
