Your two photos are underexposed, so you have to lighten them as indicated.

Take note of your histogram:

The first picture shows this:

histogram.jpg

Notice you have a large area heap on the left side. This shows that more pixels are in the shadow areas. You need an even distribution of pixels.

As a basic example, if you use auto exposure in Lightroom/Photoshop Camera Raw - (if you took this in raw, or Camera Raw Filter if you took it in JPEG), you get this:

exposure.jpg

and corresponding histogram:

histogram 2.jpg

The pixels are better distributed - from dark to light.

The histogram is very useful!

The second picture is a similar situation.

I have nothing more to add to this thread other than to say you have received some very solid feedback and advice from the ACPs here. Great thread!
