Two pictures -need feedback and critique

Heylou,
after a really long break I post-processed two pictures. What is more, I did that without my tablet because it's broken. I used my mouse instead. I am sure they are imperfect and that is why I need a critical eye to asses them and give me feedback what can be improved. I'd appreciate that very much!
The originals:

The post-processed ones:

Please, I could really use a little critique. These retouches can't be that bad that it isn't worth a word.

Thanks Murray. Not sure if it was real problem or Norton reporting false positive. Have checked again and does look OK.

The Leena it would be nice to see the before and afters together either a link to the pair or perhaps even Save for Web version with thumbnail view here - much easier for your audience to compare and less hassle.

Like what I can see of the second image. You seem to have warmed it up nicely particularly the hair, however for me the red shadows maybe a little too much and the highlight under the chin would IMO need to look a little more yellow as it would be catching the bounce of the yellow dress.

The first image I am not too sure that I like what you have done. Seems you wanted to warm the image somewhat, which to me looks reasonable. But I just feel that the overall mood is a little too contrasty/dark and the vignetting does not add much as again it is overdone.

This of course is just my personal opinion which of course include my own particular tastes in images therefore should be taken as just that. Only you can tell if the image has turned out as you visualised from the original

I like the effect on the first processed one.
