Sorry, Gilles, "memoria fragilis est" - I mixed two interfaces - Adobe Bridge
and FotoStation (with small bits of IMatch). But both are interesting and with
taking elements from both of them we can agree on good mechanism.

1. Adobe Bridge. There is empty space below image like in digiKam in this space
after selection of image, dots will appear which can be selected and become
stars. You can also choose labels from main menu (not mini-menu I previously
described) and those color will appear as visible in DGardner links or your own
from other bug report: 
(on your screenshot there are no stars but they would  be overlayed over color
2. FotoStation: After hovering ca. 250ms over image plate small widget will
appear in lower part of image. It will containg X and 5 dots. Rating is
assigned after clicking dots, X removes rating. If you select images quickly,
before special area is activated image is selected - even if this is area of
rating - rating isn't assigned. Color labels are assigned through mini-menu on
bottom of image plate and this mini-menu is used only for color labels. IMatch
has similar mini-menu but it is practically full context menu (terribly long).

My suggestion is similar Adobe Bridge:
Don't show area or anything by default. All special actions are shown only
after selection of image. In this way first click will only select image (or
when clicked in image perform preview/edit action) and shows all additional
widgets. Maybe even show those additional elements only on one image where
mouse is?
