Nice images, Andrew. I have to say I prefer the first one marginally over your second shot. The reason being that the children and tree trunk are too central for my liking. I would have pointed the lens a little further over to the left just to remove the dead space behind their backs.
As regards your other question as to why the effect you were asked to create works better with your telephoto lens than your standard kit lens is fairly straightforward. As you know using a wide aperture gives you a shallow depth of field (DoF) and a small aperture will conversly give your shot a deep DoF. Likewise, when you shoot using a small focal length this exagerates the perspective and high focal lengths compress the perspective. It's the combination of these two effects that cause it to occur in the first place and of course the higher the focal length you use the more pronouced it becomes.
