We learn more from failures than from successes.

Here's a perfect example of RP rejecting something for a technical reason which later would be slammed with a killer rejection (blown out sky).

The sky is a scene killer. Specifically the floating tree that's mostly blown out below.

While the light is very, very poor, the main issue I see here is composition. You needed to be to the left about 20' and at more of an angle. Here in this broadside, the two locomotives are stacked up too much and it's very hard to enjoy Leviathan with 765 hulking in the background. The part that is the coup de grāce compositionally for me is the blue/yellow car and the cyclone fence. They are ripping my eye away from what I want to look at which is the two gorgeous locomotives.
