Thanks for the feedback, Giovanni & Mick! Much appreciated (as are the "personals" with the rejects, that is very helpful and is very good advise, now I just have to learn to do it right from the start...)
I will pull it from the queue and rework it!
PS: For some viewers that come in late (after pulling it from the queue), here 's a link to the same shot (but on my personal website):
Unfortunately, I have noticed that another uploaded shot (which is already in screening for most of the day) has a similar color cast... if it would be accepted as such, I promise to re-upload a better/improved scan
PS: would this color cast problems be typical to my old slides or is it just old me (and my editing techniques)?

Quoting Dendrobatid (Reply 4): This magenta cast seems typical of old scanned slides, probably due to a fading dye.
It is usually correctable by adding green and sometimes a touch of cyan too (to remove red)
That's again a lesson learned! I was always comparing my edited result with the original slide, I 'll to improve that with future uploads!
