on the first, the focus is on the monkey and not your boy. and I'm seeing yellow in his skin (but I don't have the mouseover to tell me numbers). freaky bug! WB seems off there since the background looks blue. and WAY too much yellow in the last. did you shoot in RAW? If so, I think that one is just a WB issue.
Love the comp of the tiger shot, and yes I really think the color looks better. The first one the entire pic looks too orangy and yellowy (are those words?), second is great! As for #1, I do not see a difference in the focus in the original and edit either. bummer.
