Groups of animals can be difficult because it's hard to find a composition with a nice focal point, especially as deer often seem to string out in a line. In both cases, the stag with his head up is an obvious candidate but he gets a little lost in all that's going on. In this case, I think a longer lens (around the 200mm mark) would help to isolate him. It would also help to cut out the bright sky, which is causing exposure problems in #2.

There's quite a big white balance problem with #1 — the fluorescent cyan sky is a dead give-away. Auto white-balance has probably seen the brown deer and decided that you're in very orange light, which it has tried to correct for. Setting the colour temperature to about 6200K gives a more natural-looking image and brings out the colour of the deer more, too.
