Default Photo critique/advice

Greetings, I recently submitted a photo to RP.Net, and it was rejected under two different pretexts. The first photo submitted is here:

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...&key=989723306

Reason(s) for Rejection: - Undersharpened (Soft):

So, I adjusted the sharpness, and resubmitted only to be rejected again:

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...key=1095353752

Reason(s) for Rejection: - Bad Color: Not enough color depth or too much color saturation.

Your thoughts, comments, critiques & suggestions are welcome!

Thanks in advance!

Looks like too much cyan. The lake and sky are too blue. Top of rails have blue tint...I think.

Thanks for pointing that out, Hatchetman. Now that I look closely at the photo, I see where it appears to be overly saturated in that respect.

Many thanks to the suggestion of Hatchetman, the photo was finally accepted into the database: http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=359358

I lowered the level of cyan present within the photo, then slightly increased the level of red to balance the overall color, followed by an application of sharpness at 75%/0.7 Radius/0 Threshold did the trick!
