you could try de something like selective desaturation (not sure if thats the word for it), because the green from the box seems really harsh, and also turn down the highlights a little. Have you checked out the tutorial on reading waveforms from abek?

shit i didn't read your original post. Yea you need bring down the brightness in the second one. The first actually looks better if it wasn't so green/yellow. Try removing some of the saturation from the first clip and i think it would be money
