So im starting to try and color grade my photos to make them pop a little more. I took this photo a few days ago and I edited it with Photoshop. Im not saying its perfect but it does look better. I may need to be a little more sutle with the color correction but it definately pops. Critisism is welcome. Im new to photo editing so please be gentle.

First one has too much red in the sky, colour balance is wrong.   Maybe you need to check your monitor / graphics card calibration?

They both look like computer generated images, not photos, too clean and noise free, even the ripples in the water have been cleaned.

Are those aeroplanes really painted grass green?

"Critisism is welcome" - that's good

I don't think it is available any more, or has changed in name, but I shoot everythinbg in 'Vivid' and it gets you a lot closer to a good result. Also, I set the color temperature to 6500, never leave it on 'auto' for colour balance, particularly for video material.
