about a week ago I uploaded a picture:
with rejection-reason badcolor
So I adjusted a bit of the color and thought it was fine, here is the result:
with rejection-reason badcolor again but with a personal note:"it is still badcolor. Do not reupload rejected shots without changes. You are risking a ban"
Waw!! I'm risking a ban here! Could somebody explain me why someone who is working on his pictures and reuploading some changed pictures can get a ban ? Now I hope that I can have a fair answer and that this message doesn't gets banned as well!
And, if somebody wants to help me getting the picture better (whiter) may e-mail me, I will then send the picture. Thank you in advance!

You've got to admit that there's hardly any difference between those two pictures. Had I been screening the second upload, I'd have been very hard pressed to notice any difference between the two pictures. In terms of sorting this picture out, it would take you about thirty seconds to open that photograph in PhotoShop and correct the colour balance by selecting an appropriate white point and letting the program do the rest. That would produce a far better result colour-wise than what you have here.
As far as banning is concerned, there has been at least one photographer who has received a one month uploading ban for repetitively uploading the same pictures without making significant improvements (coupled with some abuse regarding our rejection of his pictures). Whilst "banning" is moving towards a last resort and in the case I mentioned was only done after many attempts to solve the problem more ammicably, suspension is a potential option for repetitive offenders. Please note that I am not suggesting that you are a persistant offender, just that we are monitoring people who reupload the same pictures without having made significant improvements, and there are sanctions that can be applied in the worst cases.
