Wow--this is a great week!  I am so excited about being able to get back to your curve results by creating a smart object!  What a great thing that Mike included.  This will help me when you tell me I missed the boy's skin tone!

Wonderful job really...

A slight tweak warms this up just a touch and makes the boy look better overall...
I switched to RGB because the cast is linked to the brightness in your version of this image...I know that because I set some hue clocks at various brightness areas and found the 85 - 100 range is where the cast was strongest.  Look at the before and after numbers on the hue clocks as shown. 

I pinned the red channel above and below that rnage and made a slight adjustment to make the 103 point neutral.  It is a subjective choice but the cast is controlled.
