Default Bad Color Help

Hi everyone:

I had a couple of shots get dinged for bad color and was hoping I could get a little advice.

I take it that the orange in the first one does not have the "pop" that it should? I try not to get carried away with saturation, and this one looked pretty true to life to my eye. I try not to get carried away with the saturation on these shots.

In the second one, the MAC is very faded, and again looks washed out. But it seems like a pretty true representation of what the loco looks like in person.

Looking for opinions on whether I should reprocess and try again, appeal, or drop them. Also, if you suggest reworking them, what is the suggested technique to make the color "good"?

Thanks, Jim
