Default A Little Bad Color For Ya!

Hello Everyone!

New to the forums, but have been uploading for about three years. Please bear with me as I become accustom to using the forum. Normally, I tend to either let the photo go, or get stubborn and continue tweaking things without ever asking for a second opinion. I've already appealed this photo, asking for some more guidance on which way the color should be adjusted, but was rather let down when there was no explanation given in the final appeal. Here is photo in question:

Maybe some of you more advanced photographers can lead me in the right direction. I always tend to have issues shooting in such low lighting like this. Thank you all for your help.

God bless,
Jake

It looks a bit underexposed to me. It needs contrast and saturation. But image quality seems very lacking here. The sky is totally gooched. Make sure you're working from the original file (i.e. start over) and use maximum quality when resizing.

God bless,

Needs more contrast, and less yellow channel saturation. That's pretty bad...

Is "gooched" related to "tainted"??
