Default Bad Color Rejection

First time poster to the board. Any suggestions on what to correct on this image? It was rejected as bad color after submitting a second time. First time it was rejected for undersharpened so I went back and sharpened the scan before resubmitting and made sure to include that in my comments. Original is a K64 slide that I shot at 1/500@5.6 with a 50mm lens. I'm scanning the slide at 4800 dpi on a CanoScan 9000f mark II scanner.

The color looks correct to me so I don't know what to adjust. Is this worth trying to clean up and submit again or just move on to something more productive. I haven't tried to submit to rp for a while but thought I'd try again to submit some of my better slides.

Overall, the image seems a tad bit on the blue side. It needs a little more warmth.

Too blue. Image quality is surprisingly good from that scanner (I have one myself).

Default Bad Color Rejection

Thanks guys for the direction on being too blue. I didn't notice it before but once you pointed it out I see it. I went into photoshop and corrected:

However, it's now been rejected due to High Sun. Can't argue with that, it was early afternoon in August. At least I got the color corrected now and can keep a better eye on color shifts on my future scans.

Thanks again,
