    It's hard to critique work like this as I/we don't know what you were trying to accomplish here other than just a snap or two. So you need to ask the first specific question.

    Looking at the EXIF data that indicates full automatic exposure less any compensation doesn't tell us much either.

    So lets start at square 1 and I will ask what do want to know in a more specific way.

    All of the images are soft and muddy in color to begin with.

    Are you shooting JPEG or RAW? How are you post-processing?

    Lense: EF-S 55-250mm 1:4-5.6 is. Its just the factory lens that came with the camera. Not real sure how to clear up the pictures using all different settings. I will just have to take some classes. Any help would be fantastic.

    Your off to a good start so lets first teach you a little about exposure with some reading below:

    The above should get you a little more serious on the basic subject and get your images more clear and detailed.

    I will let someone who knows something give you CC.

    I agree with CanadaCaller....grab the gun. I also want to go to work with you if the office xmas gifts are new cameras.
