i'm thinking male as well, but the lighting is bad on the underside of the legs. There are two things to look for, the femoral pores on the insides of the legs or the two hemipenal bulges on the base of the tail to determine if it is a male.

You absolutely can not sex a dragon based on the pores, males and females both have them. take a look here http://www.beardeddragon.org/articles/sexing/

the first one looks like a female - there is a fairly defined bump right above the vent. the second one is difficult to tell, but i'm going to guess female on that one as well.

Tastetherainbow, you are looking in the wrong spot on the second dragon. You look above the vent, never below it. Check the link I posted a few messages back.

When taking a picture to try and have people identify the sex of the dragon a tip would be to darken the picture some, the white of the dragon on it's underside can have an adverse effect making the bumps hard to see.
I made a short picture guide to help this guy see if it helps you.
