Just a piece of friendly criticism, I think that these shots would be much more impactful if you shot them in studio, with a white background and high key lighting.  The background and white balance/lighting is really taking away from the beauty  of the models and the period costumes...

I don't know, I kinda like the concept of the first one, with the white railing and park setting. I'm trying to think of how I would improve that particular image, but I'm failing. Been a long day.

On the second shot, I agree, I'd prefer to see that in a high-key studio setting, perhaps with some furniture or something sorta like that for her to be leaning on.

Put the model on the 25-40% margin of the image, instead of in the middle. The middle of the image is reserved for formal composition, which either makes a solid, powerful statement, or a flat and boring image. An art text I saw on the web somewhere by Andrew Loomis talks about this matter of composition. In fact, googling formal composition will give you interesting information about this. Bit for both images, the model is not striving for a powerful look, nor a stable look. You are trying, likely, more for soft, dynamic, and feminine. Place the model on the side of the frame, and both images will be much more effective. I like the setting for both; I think a different composition will be the ticket with each. This is about birds, but will help you anyway:
