Default Bad colour rejection

The first version of this shot was rejected of being underexposed. I corrected some, but now face another problem. If someone could provide some guidance, it would be much appreciated.

Thanks

I have gotten some bad color rejections recently and was able to fix them in photoshop, but at times, since the rejection is so vague, I am not sure if they mean too saturated, undersaturated, color or white balance is off, or what. Sometimes, especially in the fall when colors are really wild, digital cameras dont handle it as well as film did I think and you have to play with it a lot in photoshop.

I think it is still slightly under exposed, but it seems to have a yellow/orange haze all over, not just on the nose.

Overall there's a yellowish cast over the entire image. What really sticks out for me is the plow looks yellow to me and the top of the ceiling looks yellow.

Troy, what do you think lab processing for film was for? Just to dunk photos in water? With any sort of processing, whether it be film or digital, you need to adjust color. Just don't over do it.

Thanks guys, just turned the saturation down a bit and it got in. Had to take my eyes off it for a while to see what was wrong though.

Can't wait to see some of the trespassing comments on this one.

Or how it still looks yellowish all over

To the OP, congrats for getting it on, anyways.

Got here too late to try to help. But I like the final version, Taylor. We've had some really good "in the shop" pictures here lately.

I understand that, but I think sometimes it may be more of a preference thing, you can add saturation (for instance) to make fall colors really pop, and as long as it looks natural, I think it could really add to a photo.

Obviously if the color is just wrong or unnatural, or way over the top, you gotta fix it. Just kind of asking what the standard or tips are.

Thanks Joe, Since I work in a locomotive shop I get to see them everyday, I just wish I had more opportunities/time to photograph them

It looks better but it's still leaning to the left a hair, I don't know how you got that by the screeners.

Oh, I believe you. It's just that there are some nutjob railfans who, unless they are given a full explanation of how you obtained such a shot, will go on about how you trespassed in order to get the shot.
