    Kind of hard to tell without something to compare to, like say, the original, don't you think?

    Not sure exactly what you are asking, but I can confirm these images are quite soft.

    As Geri suggests, you might want to start with the basics of camera operation, especially aperture and how it can affect different aspects of the image taking process. Softness could be caused by a number of factors, including depth of field, focusing issues, etc.., but in this case, as I said above, I suspect that due to the relatively wide aperture you used, the corners are much softer than the center. This is very common with lower-end lenses, and can usually be remedied (to varying degrees) as Geri suggests, by stopping down the aperture.

    I suggest, you start by learning more abiut camera settings. I don't know, what settings you used, but try the following for a photo as shown above:
    - ISO 100, 200 or 400
    - set the camera to Aperture priority
    - f/8
    - let the camera find the appropriate exposure

    Well, to start with, you need a sharp photo. Sharpening something that's already quite soft or blurry isn't going to do much good. From the looks of your photo (sharp in the center, soft towards the edge/corner, indicative of lens softness) sharpening the image is not the problem so much as taking a sharp image in the first place.

    Always save at the maximum quality and that should fix the problem. If it doesn't there are ways to fix it in editing software that I believe will usually solve the problem. I've had a little more than 100 photos since my last compression rejection and about 90 of them were originally shot in Jpeg.
    Shooting RAW or JPEG makes NO difference, I just don't see why people don't shoot RAW if they have the option, unless they either have a small buffer, not enough space or dont need to edit.

    But, each to their own opinion.

    I checked your rejections. The image of VH-DIC that was rejected May 11 suffers from compression due to the first reason I listed. It has nothing to do with the type of camera you use, you simply did not save/export the image at maximum quality. If you adjust that step in your workflow, the problem should be resolved.
