To be honest, I wouldn't call that a glint shot. For it to be a glint shot, most of the objects need to be silhouette and needs more contrast. Then maybe it would work. Here are some examples of glint shots:

If if can be rescued, I suspect the way to go is to turn the horizontal into a 5:4 vertical, removing from the right side. That stretch of rails on the right is uninteresting and all the balance is on the left.

RP may not go for it, of course. The light is pre-glint, late day but not late enough light coming perpendicular to the tracks, rather than reflecting/glinting into the camera. The light is insufficiently interesting to carry the shot, it needs a stronger composition. Toward that end, really too bad that the grain elevator has neither sign nor ad on the side and that it is a plain flat surface.

I'm not sure why you'd try the train-less shot here in the first place, but both seem too bright for glint shots, even though admittedly I'm no glint shot expert.

It's a nice shot, but I am not sure if it's my screen or not but it looks overexposed.

See your allowed to do that when your shot only has 150 views after 4 days.

I will admit. I am terrible at editing raw images, I dont understand the program that came with my camera. So if it is overexposed I probably messed up somewhere
