Knowing when to fold 'em when ZOOMing

One of my greatest weaknesses at the moment is holding on to cards that are great pre-flop, but end up second best (or worst) post-flop. I chose to play a bit tighter today. Here is a clear example:

Normally I would have called that river bet. Isn't it a bluff? But with the player at BB it is very likely he has been chasing with a 5. I think I'm beaten and I don't want to pay that much to know.

Here's another one:

Normally I would consider calling that turn bet even though there is an A on deck. This time, I reckon I'm beat.

What do you think? Did I make the right decisions?
