I am new to editing my own photos and my goal is to achieve the look of these photos below. I have played around with exposure, contrast, and all the basics and have not achieved this so far. The edits below have some sort of 'luminance' that I can not seem to figure out.
Any sort of guidance would be appreciated!
For any guidance we need to see your pictures, not the ones you want them to look alike.
I can not see anything special in the posted pictures .. in fact I'd change some things on these too
