Default Which way to go?

Rejected for bad colour - [http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=808514&key=0.

Which way should I go with this, more saturation or less? I haven't touched the saturation yet, it's off camera as far as the colour is concerned. Any thoughts welcomed!

I'd say less saturation, though the colors look fairly natural to me. The combination of the reddish ballast, the pronounced yellow on the engine, and maybe the grass may make it seem like it's over-saturated, even if it's not.

Color is good but it's to dark, lighten it up some.

Cool

As a Yank I hate to say it but that's one butt-ugly locomotive.

And why aren't there safety railings on the sides? Did they hire a left over steam designer?

Good shot though. Congrats.
