Nice shots but I wonder why the flower shot is so soft, spite the F13...

Did you shoot RAW or JPEG (if so, what settings?)

I shot RAW an I think that it's soft because I turned up the saturation a little bit because the flower itself was kinda blah and needed some juice running through it. I always use RAW, Bright Tone, and all +1 and always shoot in Av mode now due to it's great versatility and today was ISO 160 I believe maybe 200.

When you shoot RAW the tone setting and the in camera Saturation/Contrast/Sharpness settings have no effect. All those are set in your RAW converter. The in camera settings effect Jpegs only.
