The composition of the fall shot suffers because there is too much foreground compared to your summer shot. That puts the train into an awkward position. But my personal big problem with the fall shot is the color looks very unnatural, as if you did something to the balance to emphasize the fall color. The foliage looks okay, but the rest of the image is way too warm and unnatural looking. The train itself looks washed out. But RP seems to accept "over processed" images these days, so maybe the composition was a bigger issue for the screener. I don't know what your original looks like, but with better composition and better color it has the potential to be a gangbusters image.
