    Some pictures... Any and all C&C is welcome. Be as harsh as you like.
    Oh, and on the first the yellow color on his forehead was because he was in a little yellow car thing. Anyone know how to photoshop that out?

    in the second one, he looks so sad :(
    also, there's something in his camera right eye?

    he's got some killer blue eyes though.
    at first i didnt like the multiple colored background in the first picture, but the more i look at it, i like the balance it achieves with his shirt. (blue + yellow = green)

    In the second I might have cleaned up his forehead, and smoothed that little crease on the bridge of his nose. A little bump in contrast to help sharpen things a tad. But other than that, it's a great image.

    You can use the lasso tool in PS to isolate the area of his head thats yellow. Then use Hue/Satuation filter, and select Yellow channel and desaturate to taste (move the slider to the left). You can use the dodge tool at very low opacity to brighten the eyes a bit as well. And as mentioned, you can also use the healing or clone tool to clean up the forehead a little. Some local contrast would help the shadow/highlight tones quite a bit as well. It also helps to resize pics to at least 800 px on the long side before posting.

    Cute kid. I like the sharp focus on the eyes and facial features in #2.

    Since you are asking about removing colourcast (the yellow reflection on his brow) I am assuming you may not have PS or don't know how...
    There are advanced techniques - but this was just a simple desaturation of YELLOWS and REDS from the whole image (no selections) as I thought the whole image was too red/yellow anyway...
    I also cropped a tad of his forehead...

    Thanks for the comments and advice everyone. Jedo_03, I really like that edit. I have PS, just not very skilled at it.
    Anymore C&C is welcome

    He looks so angry in the second picture, but it's stunning. I am not too good at color correction, I try, otherwise I'd help you with the first one. As in, give you tips on how to remove the yellow.
