When I create my image in CS6 with nice pleasantly saturated and vibrant colors in TIFF (after RAW conversion), the image suffers a great loss in those qualities after I uploaded as jpeg to the dpc site. I already foresee the mediocre scores for my next entry (at least in part) because of this.
My camera (D7100) is set to shoot in Nikon sRGB so it should not be a color space issue. Even if I convert to sRGB IEC61966-2.1 it doesn't help. If I do the "save for web" step (OS X) I can already see in the jpeg preview the quality loss but whatever I've tried could not prevent it.

I have seen similar threads earlier, but nothing really could help that I had known about so far.

If somebody could help me with some new suggestions, I would be ever grateful!

Make sure you're saving with sRGB profile. That's almost always the cause of this issue.

In CS6, use "save for web", and check the setting.

whats your workspace set at in CS6, if your working in ProPhoto you may see more vibrant colors and then when you SFW you will be losing some of the color space. Just a thought. My experience has always been to keep everything in the workflow in the same color space so you stay consistent.

My workspace is Essentials (default). I haven't touched that since I had installed the software.

Actually, there is one more thing I have just noticed: in CS6 under Edit/color settings/advanced controls there is an option for "desaturate monitor colors by ...%", for which 20% is pre-offered. If I do that, the resulting image is very closely matching with the web image. The problem with this is that I don't see WHERE the problem lays: if I chose that option and make the image pleasantly saturated in CS6 as well as on the web screen is it going to be seen by others the same way? ...at least this is testable. Not right now, but I will check it soon.
