You can put the vibrancy to -100 and push the red slider to the cyan and the magenta to the green with a color balance filter

This filter is the color balance filter from photoshop but you have the same result with any color ajustement filter (level, curve selected on red channel ...) to reduce the saturation of the red channel

Hi Andy
All 3 images are considerable different. It would help if you could verbalize the effect that you want to duplicate that appears in all 3 images. Recommendations could be better targeted that way. Just a suggestion.

Hmmm,good point John,i think thats the biggest problem,i dont know how to explain exactly.Its that type of photo that still got the colors alive but in the same time it got a pale effect or something that doesnt look like a normal retouch photo.
Here is an ex.Its a nice photo,with intens colors,looks nice

Re: Can you help me?

What you seem to be looking at (at least globally!) is a reduction in contrast i.e. there are no solid blacks. You could try first reducing overall contrast by using a curves layer and moving the black point vertically up and if necessary the white point vertically down.
Should you wish to introduce a colour bias into shadows or highlights the same moves can be made in the individual RGB channels

It would be far better IMO if you actually posted one of your own images and a link to a particular reference image, but bear in mind that scene and lighting play a vital role here and your original should be fairly close in terms of scene and lighting

I agree with Tony

I would select the part of the image you want to standout. Either increase Saturation, vibrance, or saturate selected colors. This can be done with adjustment Layers or if you have CC with using the Camera Raw Filter

Then use the inverse mask and reduce contrast and and saturation/vibrance. This could include bringing up the black point as well.
