Default Help needed with color

Hello, I first got this rejected for over sharpened no problem, it then came back as bad color. Any help is always appreciated.

Color looks fine to me (maybe a little too blue?), but the photo looks slightly overexposed. Try lowering the exposure by 0.10 or 0.20 EV.

Also, crop off the top and right side.

I concur with Magicman; color is fine but photo does appear (on my screen anyway) to be a wee bit overexposed. Nice photo tho, with some interesting sky.

Looks a bit flat to me. Needs more saturation on my screen.

Yes, and the white of the numbers on the numberboards are not "white."

Hmmm...I see no difference in color. But what I DO see is the accepted image is noticeably softer than the reject. I'm surprised you didn't get dinged for that. Compare the before and after and you'll see what I mean. The reject is sharp, the accepted is not.

I noticed that also, Jim. At any rate, congrats on getting it accepted.

Jim, just got home from work and looked. You are 100% right. Is there a way to fix it without having to resubmit?
Thanks Kevin
Jason

No, but resubmit is painless. The shot does not get rescreened. You just upload it and the screener checks to see if it is the same shot as the accepted shot.
