Both photos can be improved dramatically without being washed out. English Wolf is correct, results can be shown much better with the originals. You can ask for critique, i.e., what can be done (by you) to improve them, or you should make it clear that others can take a whack at it.
This second image took more processing. You were there, so you know what it should look like. I'll be interested to see what English Wolf comes up with for either or both of these.
