    There's a giant letter N growing out of that poor kid's head!

    You need some separation between the little tyke and the letter.

    'Crisp' can mean a lot of things.

    The images you posted were taken with a longer lens, while yours seem to have a wide-angle appearance to them.

    That said, I'm sure the mods will come along and remind you not to post photos that aren't yours.

    I'd say editing isn't the issue. You need more practice shooting.

    What don't you like about the two pictures you posted? My own preference, and remember that's only my preference, is that the first one might be better if the letter didn't touch his head and his feat were entirely in the picture. I think the second would have been even cuter if he was interacting with the pumpkins rather them just laying there. I think that interaction would make a more interesting picture because it would tell a story. try to tell a story adds content to photos. The first picture does that with the ONE. But they are still nice shots. Don't be so hard on yourself.

    Photography takes skills, experience and knowledge and, in the three years since you posted last; while you may have been practicing, it seems that you haven't been acquiring the actual knowledge to help you progress.
    Without actual knowledge, you can't know what is wrong and then you can't fix things.

    The larger picture is over-exposed and thus there is no detail in the whites; the white balance is too cold, portraits tend to be warmer.
    The boy is posed against a busy background and the featureless sky rather than you moving around so that the barn fills the background. With a wide angle lens that was used, the background is in focus and gets in the way.
    The subject isn't looking at the camera and so there is no eye contact.
    There are no embedded exif so we can't tell what aperture, shutter speed or focal length that were used.

    other small issues
    the thumbnail pictures is in png mode, which is typically used for graphics and is much larger than an equivalent sized jpg (that's why the picture is > a megabyte.)
    both pictures are named 'image' thus it goes into our download folders as one of 30 or so files all named 'image'.
