I think has a slight orangey cast (little too yellow and a little too red)

It's a mixed lighting situation - window light in the back and a flash on the couple. You might need to mask the color fixes to adjust for that. Watch the highlights on clothes and forehead which are very bright already - I often use a curves adjustment layer set to multiply blend mode with a black mask; then paint in dark grays to tone down the highlights (blur as needed to be sure the transitions are smooth)

On my screen it did seem a bit cool. See how this looks on yours. Couldn't tell if his pants were dark blue or black so used the spot on the far left for the blacks. Just a thought.  :)

Sorry I've been AWOL but we've had terrible weather (Seattle area) and power out, Internet out...

I think Shadows version looks good; your latest has gotten rid of the blue in the white clothes, but is bringing back some of the orange you had at first. Perhaps change opacity a little on your adjustments?

It's not far off :)
