Default The streaks over; PEQ opinions

My streak of 9 shots accepted without a rejection came to an end today.
I am wondering what your thoughts are. I noticed to noise after I submitted, i can correct that. Any other ideas?

Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG

Uninteresting, blown out white sky, and the streak is positioned too highly in the left part of the frame.

Let it go..

Real close. The car color is very good.

But what I think kills it is the bad light of white sky. If it was twilight with cobalt blue and some other highlight it would work.

As it is the blah light makes it blah.

The shot was taken pretty much in the dark. I think if it was sunny I could have obtained the cobalt such as in this shot:

In addition to the others' comments, you also have a pretty blatant dust spot to the right of the center.

Blown out sky, nothing to look at but a streak and some noise and grain within the streak.

Not sure if you've noticed but in the shot of the 316 it appears you have a "hot pixel" in the left center of the frame. I've noticed a few with my Rebel XSi when shooting in low light situations. They are often easily corrected using photo editing software.
