Default Overexposed

Yesterday, this photo was rejected for being "Overexposed". Do you have ideas why exactly?

Here is the histogram of the original image, which was actually slightly underexposed:

So I see no actual overexposure. Examining the image for areas where detail is lost, I see just one: the cement silo wagons at the end of the train (I could correct that with a local brightness manipulation). Or have I over-done the highlights/shadows correction (tree on the right)? Or something else entirely?
