Default Underexposed

Both of these got hit with underexposed. I'm not sure, they seem to look fine to me. Any suggestions are more than welcome.

They both (especially #1) need a little more light. Just a tad, you don't wanna blow any details in the snow.

Bad contrast too.

The red on the engines is lost.

The white of the snow looks good however and sometimes that is the issue.

Both are indeed a hair underexposued. I also think the second one needs a little color correction. It looks a bit blue to me. After that, how about spending a bit of time reaearchng what Canadian Pacific's reporting marks are and putting them in the correct field.

The first one is leaning to the left. The horizon unlevel reject is a very subjective one (and it is so simple) so you might be able to get it on as is, but I think you should level it just in case.

the "give away" to me is there are no pure whites anywhere in the picture.
