Default Bad color or bad paint?

Or are they just trying to tell me its cloudy and I shouldve slept in?
The colors are pretty accurate to me, the BCOL unit was really rough looking.

They should've put a cloudy rejection. I can see overcast clouds in the background.

I'd say it has too much contrast or saturation. Your evergreens are a shade of red, the brown grass of fall is reddish also. Maybe underexposed too?

Might be it, I juiced up the saturation alot since it was cloudy and the unit was so faded and dirty, didnt even look right in the sun, the red was closer to orange.

Appears overly juiced to me, considering the lighting.

It also has a gangsta lean. I thought it was wide angle related more than unlevel, but that lens doesn't exhibit that much distortion at 35mm.

It would look nice if you ran it through Photomatix software and made an HDR image.

Adjusted the colors so the trees were less red, brightened, still bad color, and we havnt even got to unlevel yet. Screw it I guess

I knocked the saturation down -25 in PSE 10 to make the pine trees and the CN paint more realistic on your second rejection link.

And around 2.5 degrees CW for the unlevel.

All the color magic in the world isn't going to fix the lean to the left...why are you still monkey'ing around with color without fixing the lean????

Because they rejected it for color? I did rotate it CW, just may need a little more.
