Recreating effect

Hi Guys,

Was wondering if someone would be able to point me in the right direction with this?
I'm looking to reproduce a effect on my photo's to give it a certain feel like these images:



So I've played around for a while but just can't nail it! Is it something to do with a blend or colour grading or a series of colour moves? The closet that I've got is this:

The way I did the above was by going to exposure / +offset and then adding contrast. I've also tried filling a layer of white and knocking that down but it doesn't work as well as the above. I know that there is something missing but I don't know what?

Would also like to know how to do light leak which I can add to the wash out effect something like this:


Any help would be greatly appreciated! Many Thanks.
