Default Cloudy on a.....not cloudy shot

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...42&key=2265669

This was not cloudy during this day. Could it be the exposure that gives it a cloudy impression?

Well, it looks cloudy anyway, but to me, the subject matter should overcome that.

EDITTED TO ADD

Strike my first comment. You've got one shot in that shows the same train from the same side. I'd rather have the shot in from the curve, but since the other shot is already in, I'd likely keep it from the personal collection.

With that said, more than likely I won't fight it.

I like it, but the sky is kinda blown out, especially at the upper right. Some recovery tool and a bit of contrast (what do I know about contrast anyway?) and this will be a nice one for the personal collection.

The color on 915 looks really out of wack.

So overcast is not cloudy?

Apparently THAT one was not taken on a cloudy day or the equipment was not initially "common" until later in the day.

If it's not cloudy, then then sun is probably too low giving it a cloudy effect. There are no shadows or hot spots from the sun, so it's either too low in the sky or you got semi-cloud F'd.
