Default Sets of eyes

Need more eyes on this one, looks sharp as a tack to me. Besides that, what else is wrong with it? I'm trying to really think outside of the railroad photography box, and thought probably it would have got kicked for PEQ or something along those lines. I personally love it, what do you think?

Also I actually took a lot of time leveling this beast. Ideas?

Thought personally they were pretty good photos. I guess not.

First one should be rejected for backlit, the blown out sky looks terrible, the backlighting does nothing to enhance the image but alot to detract from it. Ill let Jim or someone figure out the second one.

Well, photography is subjective, and I like the first one. I don't see the blurry at all, to the point that I wonder if the screener hit the wrong rejection reason. I do wish the sun had been just a wee bit lower so that it would have been filtered a bit more by the hillside. Not much you can do there. I can live with the flare but it isn't what one would want.

The second one, I'm not in a mood to inspect closely for level. I find the foreground much less than enticing and I'd prefer you go 10-20 yards down to the right and make the caboose a more prominent part of the composition. That splash of NW on red is just too interesting, so at that size it acts as a distraction rather than a complementary element. That location might also allow one to see all the way to the bottom of the doors on the structure, and maybe the trucks on the caboose.

PS: a shot from the other side:
