Question Bad Color....Too Much, Too Less?

Ok, So I decided to make the almost 1hr 1/2 drive down to Hampton, SC this evening, to capture a beautiful sight in beautiful light. Tried to upload to RP and got the 'Bad Color' rejection x2. Any thoughts?

First one (I see where it was too much Saturation):

Second one (Less Saturation, but I guess it still didn't work?):

Thanks!

To me, it looks like the units are giving off an almost yellow tint. Maybe play around with the color temperature?

I opened the photo in PS and messed with it for a few seconds.

I thought it looked significantly better after bringing the exposure down a tad, and reducing the contrast by a very large amount. Just my opinion/preference though.

Why does the left side of the frame look soft but the rest has okay sharpening?

-20 Saturation, darkened a little bit, and a .25 CCW rotation.

Do you have a shot that has a little bit more space on the left hand side?
