I'm not seeing the PIQ on the first one but the other two are spot on. The GCR shot is not going to make it, but the Amtrak shot might if you crop it differently. I would go to a 2:3 crop and do the same left, bottom, and right, but hack a bunch off the top.

Amtrak may work like this but may get foreground clutter due trucks obscured.

One flaw in the amtrak shot is that you have cropped off part of the reflection. Next time aim lower, less sky, more reflection.

This version may or may not be recoverable. A bit too much on the left for my tastes. And follow Peter's advice.

GCR: poor light. Well, GREAT light on the top! But we can't see that part ...

Now I get:

Bad Color: Not enough color depth or too much color saturation.

and

Poor Lighting (High Sun): The angle of the sunlight is too high, a common problem in the summer months of year on mid-day shots.

You fix one thing and it's something else

Add some saturation and it should be good...
