To Snookles - I see it might be a little bit confusing, but actually no - I am not submitting in ProPhoto. In step 4 I am creating a what can be called a "master file" - a jpeg which is retouched and in maximum possible quality. But this master file is not good to be submitted, because DT website is not color managed (it ignores color profiles) and thus best profile for it is sRGB. Basically the master file is just for my archive, and when a certain need is to use my photo, than I have to convert it to correct profile... - let's say my photo is planed to be used in printed magazine - than I have to prepare a "tailored" color managed file - so I open the "master file" and convert it to CMYK Fogra39 color profile, which is standard for printed media in my environment. The DT is similar - it is ignoring profiles, so sRGB is best choice to display colors correctly. So again I have to prepare tailored color managed file and that is the step 7 in my workflow. I understand that submitting in AdobeRGB, or ProPhotoRGB would give better color to a client, but not all client know what to do with color profile and you are risking a wrong color representation on DT website and that of course means less sales... So for now converting to sRGB seems like best choice to me...
I wish I had more time for photography...
