Looks a little green maybe?

Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG

Decently close, considering how bad the lighting is for photography there. I'd suggest some work on the green as well.

It was actually yellow channel, not green. The only green in the shot was the doors, which you can barely see. I also boosted some red and did selective + white end levels on the sky.

Can I get your thoughts on whether or not any of these are worth re-working or appealing? I have tried a couple of them multiple times.

This one got cropping twice, I actually liked the first one as-is (there is a funny backstory to this one)

This one got unlevel and unsharp first, I used some photoshop shennanigans to fix the level issue and sharpened, then it got underexposed and undersharpened When a train is that far away, you can only get the details so sharp.

Contrast first, underexposed second.

1st one: Why did you cut off the train?
2nd: I like it, but I agree it is underexposed.
3rd: Don't you already have 15 shots of this train in better lighting? Why would you want this one on?
4th: Can't see it.
5th: Already on.
