Default Bad colors? How can I fix this?

Hi team,

This picture has been rejected for "bad colors". Honestly, on my screen, it does not look bad, so I do not know how to fix it.

Thanks in advance for your guidance,
Daniel

This sometimes happens with my photos too. They get this green tinge about them and I'd also love to know how to fix it.

That's a tricky one - it's not oversaturated though desaturating the yellow may help. Another trick of the trade would be to lower the temperature but the more I stare the more I note a ting of greenish yellow that needs to be removed. It may be a natural reflection of the grass but it seems to effect the sky as well.

If you have color balance - try upping the blue in the highlights or midrange to loose that yellowish (greenish) cast.
