Bad Color help

I don't like the "Bad Color: Not enough color depth or too much color saturation" rejection reason. It gives no clue as to whether the screener wants more color depth, or less saturation.

If the lens is the Nikkor 55-200 you have in your signature, I don't believe it does have in-lens IS. If it did, it should have an enable-disable switch, as on this Canon lens for example...
