Default Bad color on this one.

I don't usually fuss to much about a reject, as a matter of fact, when I review them, I gotta say I agree with 99 percent of them.
When this one was rejected, I had eleven rejections listed. All, after I reviewed them, with good reason.
But I'm having a hard time with this one:

What is wrong with the color here?

The yellow looks a bit over-saturated to me.

I would agree. Can you reduce the yellow a tad?

Congrats on making it in! Excellent shot!

It's fine for them to do so, I welcome it in fact, but what I do have a problem with is that the practitioners of the more "arty" shots, I have found, tend to look down their nose's at others who are shooting more "mundane" shots.
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

Thank you guys! Good advice..I think I may have fell a little to much in love with the bright yellow against the blue sky, and added just a little too much saturation.
