this is what I'm seeing after some PP and seeing the end result as you suggested. I think the biggest challenge so far, aside from actually getting an interesting photograph, is to know what the PP software is capable of.
This is better then the first four photos, but it looks like there is some camera shake/movement, and the colors are off. The picket fence should be white, not cream, right?

Are you shooting in RAW?

You also might want to try a few pics in Bright JPEG mode out of the K20D. I'm betting your friend w/ the D40 showed you JPEG images straight out of the D40 instead of RAW images which pretty much look like K10D RAW images since it has the same sensor.
Good points kenyee - just a minor correction, D40 has a 6MP sensor, K10D has the 10MP (you're thinking of the D40x).

I just went and adjusted the AF on all my lenses and my kit lens was off -2, the Tamron +2, and my Tamron 105-300 was off by 7 steps. Amazing the difference in picture quality
Can you please explain how you did this? I am interested in knowing.

Cheers

No shake in that photo, I just had it enlarged 20x30 and it was tack sharp. The pickets were supposed to be cream/yellow due to morning sunlight

The procedure is described in detail in the magic lantern guide. It basically calls for you to enter the af adjustment menu, and play with those settings until you get a clear photo
