The boys

I followed the boys around the backyard last night like a person from the paparazzi! All I wanted was a photo of the tow of them sitting on the grass... yeah NOT! not only was I really annoyed at myself that I felt I couldn't get a decent photo of these kids doing what I want them to do how would I get one doing what they want to do? So step out of the Mummy role and think that its ok if they are not perfect they are kids. I left the photos on the camera last night and then I had a look at them this afternoon after having a little ah ha I think I get a little bit of metering!

anyway I tried to pp - only WB adj then temp adjust because the auto daylight is too orange for me.still to orange? , fiddled with the curves a bit - is it too much? and that was about it. here are some efforts...

They is SO CUTE! I can tell they are handfuls huh? Sounds like my boys at those ages..always on the move, never sitting still for even a second! LOL

Your processing looks good- a little warm in a few of them but not horrible- it just looks like the pics were taken at sunset (which is a look I LOVE personally). You are doing great! :)

They are adorable!!
As for the orange, maybe try doing a color balance adjustment layer and take some red out of the highlights.
Also if you have to lighten a photo a lot (like in the last one) then try going into levels and moving the left slider towards the middle so you can add back in some contrast (it will make your darks darker)
