Don't shoot at that location. Way too many poles and wires.

Hmmm. Well, for what it's worth, the color looks OK to me. But that "Bad Color" rejection always leaves me scratching my head. My gut tells me that if they heap that many reasons on you, give up on that one.

I do agree with Mike about the poles etc. Perhaps a less cluttered location.

I am honestly not sure many times what the difference between bad color and bad contrast is. Both seem to be used equally. In these cases I typically assume I didn't adjust the general color settings well enough, whether it be brightness, contrast, saturation, or whatever.

That's a city for ya. Sometimes you just have to work with what you've got. Chi-town Railfan, great photos can be had in the environment, even with the wires. Just experiment around. Wires can add to the shot you know.

Different strokes for different folks I guess. I've never seen a wire in a photo of mine and been glad it's there. The only time I want poles in the shot is when it's related to the railroad but in the OP's photo it looked like maybe one at most was RR related.
