Default Early Morning Light Help

I've been through 4 rejections with this shot. I've had an underexposure, 2 undersharpeneds, and then the bad color/underexposed duo. What should I do to correct the color and exposure? Thanks!

Ease back on the saturation a bit and a slight adjustment in levels and you should be fine. Here is a quick version I came up with.

Don't forget to clone out the distracting leaves in the upper right corner.
Rhymes with slice, rice and mice, and probably should be spelled like "Tice."

This pretty much sums it up: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Thias

Yep, clone the leaves, sharpen it a bit, but I'd also recrop and add more to the bottom. The train looks cramped down there.
