    Here are some pics for that effect with highly saturated and contracst feeling,but not exaggerated.These pics are obviously pretty similar in the retouching method,maybe the same action , preset and etc.
    I have tried a lot times but cann't find the way.
    Guys you have any idea or you have the similar action/presets?Thanks.

    I could achieve similar results in LR3 by jacking up the clarity slider.

    Like any photoshop trick, there are multiple ways of doing any single task. You might be able to accomplish this with a curves layer, or messing with the channels. But the most simple methods have already been mentioned.

    The key to these photographs is not in the retouching or some magical preset. You have to start with a good photograph with excellent lighting and exposure. Then, probably just some contrast adjustments in PP. The clarity slider will NOT do this. What you see in these photographs is not an "effect," but rather good photography.

    Lightroom/Photoshop is not magic, people. You can't polish a turd.

    in lightroom,

    pumping the blacks and the clarity would do something similar

    its true that you have to start with a good and well exposed photograph but the clarity + some black will totally do that effect.

    I disagree. The clarity slider does more for sharpening/local contrast/mid tone contrast. Think high-radius unsharp mask in Photoshop. These photos are benefiting from their overall contrast. Clarity looks bad on photos of people's faces but would probably work on the 5th photograph, MAYBE the 6th if used sparingly. Either way, the clarity slider leaves tell-tale signs that would be obvious and looked bad if used more than a couple of ticks in these photographs.

    That being said, we could possibly reach the same result of a photograph with widly different methods, so there's no way to say for sure. I guess what I'm trying to say is that what you see isn't an "effect." It's a good photo.

    There is no magic preset that will work for every one.

    These photos look great because they were great before ever being touched with Photoshop.

    100% correct.
    But I still want to say these pics outside the room are not difficult in exposure,and this retouching effect is extremly the key point that makes the pics amazing.

    We can easily imagine what the initial pics look like for these scenes.Nothing special.
