I have a calibrated wide colour gamut monitor and your images are not too red. To me they look just as I would want them.

When you posted the EXIF data was stripped so we cannot use this to assist.

What profile is your monitor using and what is your editing program set to use for final output?

If you are using a wide gamut monitor that is using an sRGB profile you WILL get garish reds not only in photographs but also in any browser pages.
