Well they are very saturated. Oversaturated may be a matter of taste. As such, they feel like a neon future club scene meets wilderness. I would soften the skin slightly. The skin really needs that on the cheek in the first one. The second one has some haloing going on on the leaf over her sleeve bottom left.

I agree, they are saturated, but I personally like bright colors.
I love the colors in the first one, especially. It's vibrant and pleasing to me. It does look a little on the blue side.

I dont like the second as much, b/c the highlights are a bit bright, and combined with the saturation... not so sure.

Her right eye (camera left) in number one looks dead, and has a weird green dot in it.

I think they are way, way oversaturated. yes. But that's my opinion and how you saturate your pics is a matter of your personal choice, so go for it, as long as it is what you were aiming for.

Way over saturated. Like the comp in both. The hair is too dark in the first one.

I like the composition. A little over done for my taste but it works if that is the look you are going for. A little softening on the skin in the first shot would look nice. I think if the skin was softer and a little less saturated and more natural the saturation in the rest of the photo would work better too.
