If the latter, it's possible that you charged more than you thought. The pressures look pretty good now. What are the vent temps?
I think that you are low on R134a as well. My math says more like 43 oz. R134a. And you'll never get full 12 oz. from a can with line purging and some remaining in the can, so figure at best 11 oz. per can. Mist the condenser, run a fan over the condenser if necessary to add the correct amount.
