Still hard to tell. It is probably post processing that is making them look a bit fuzzy. A quick contrast and saturation tweak, remove that blue cast, take out the bit of CA, a bit of sharpening - and you can almost smell the wet leaves and moss :

that's what i am thinking. says size limit 1024x700 and mine are 4288x2848
Sorry, forgot about the size limit - I just wanted to make sure the EXIF data was intact by not modifying the photo. By the way, your photos aren't that bad, other than overexposed a bit. As others have said, read up on depth-of-field, and how it affects how the subject and background appear in a photograph. Lots of resources online, and I highly recommend the book "Understanding Exposure" by Bryan Peterson: Understanding Exposure photography book review

Thanks for everyone's input. Because it is the same with both lenses I think it's me more than the
equipment. Thanks for your advice and will check up on your suggested reading. Guess I am so used
to film that digital is a different learning curve in a way.
And yes, the photo's aren't that bad, just need some slight improvement on my end.
Thanks again from New England.
