Default Too many rejections

This week I've had a string of rejections, I'm sure more than I've had in the past 6 months! Got to get back on track, so to speak, so any help will be appreciated, as always.

I thought I had done the best I could with this rare motive power, but clearly not. Couldn't do much about the power lines, but I don't think that's the problem.

The original was overexposed, so I adjusted the levels in PS3 according to the histogram, it seems to no avail.

I left more space on the right to prevent the loco being too centred, and to allow the loco to "move through" the shot. Does this need more space on the left?

Thanks
Eugene

First one has way too much sky. Also, do you have a version where you did not cut off part of the train (or something naturally blocked it)?

Second one is a toughie... try lightening a little. Not sure it will get in.

Third one is a roster shot, even if that locomotive was moving, and needs to be cropped tight around the engine. All that space on the right is distracting.

A little less sky and more ground should get the first one on. I think the second one will get on with a little brightening. RP normally accepts fog shots. As for the third, I'd add some space on the left and take off most of the right, if you can.

Thanks guys, I will make some adjustments and resubmit 2 and 3. The first one I can't improve on, so I'll go back and shoot that again as soon as I can.

As said earlier,
first one too much sky.
2nd one a little to dark.
3rd one crop it tighter, here's an example:

Best of luck Eugene.
