Great photo for me, lots of structure detail and historical significance. Cars I grew up riding.

But, photo is cramped, not sure of DOF and primary subject is off in the distance. Maybe you have another shot, even going away of 6711-12.

You have really shortchanged historical information on these cars. Minimum could be a short paragraph. Not sure that would make the difference but where I would start.

CTA kinda glosses over that part of the series had some PCC components, not sure how much.

I agree with Bob and I would also include the shot needs some perspective distortion correction.

Well, I arranged the composition and seemingly escaped that cirque, now come a new one...."overexposed."

The "white" Skyline between the building rows, I think is the overexposed issue.

Very frustrating esp when you have an image you really like but I have found there is often no way out.
