I'm not seeing it. For one, you have an interesting angle that only shows the front and it is kinda on a hill. More important though, that bridge to the right casts a huge shadow on the locomotie creating a backlight that won't change if lightened. This is just my opinion of course, but I don't know if this will make it into the database.

The D-Lighting HS feature in Nikon PictureProject has worked wonders for me. It lightens up entire images without making them look overexposed/washed out. Failing that, see what Adobe Photoshop CS2 can do for you!
