Please provide a proper link, that link is not to an individual rejected image.

Hey Doug, overall it looks a bit dull, lacking some contrast and saturation. Do you have an earlier frame? The shadow is hitting the pilot and that might be your next rejection, and with the train a little farther back, the cropping won't feel so tight. Also, the headlight flare needs to be cloned out.

I agree. For contrast, use the white stripes on the nose, they have a yellowish tint to them. Make them white by boosting contrast.
