A good subject for beginners to tackle, but critical sharpness with such subjects to me is paramount. Here the only really sharp bit is the name that appears in the flowerbed. I do find that surprising as your settings would suggest ample DoF and a shutter speed suitable for hand-holding.

Try going a little bit closer and perhaps a square crop. but do concentrate on sharp focus and a steady hand.

Still not sharp enough where it matters, - the flower. Your settings are good, and should result in a much sharper image, - and I assume after my comments on your last upload that you did sharpen this one.

Are you certain that the point of focus was on the flower? Are you using multiple focus points or just one? It should be just one, - so if its not, thats likely your problem. Read your manual and see how to select a single focus point, place that one on the flower, focus and take the shot. Its very easy to do this. The colour, for me is over saturated, and this also causes loss of detail. I loaded a mod with less colour which by itself shows more detail in the petals of the flower.

So try these tip, and lets se the improvement!

As said above. Quite nice in a soft pastel way with good depth but could do to be rather sharper on the flower. You don't need the manual to get sharp images and I suspect movement here. It is quite possible to move a camera at 1/125 second and thats what it looks like. Please, this logo is a bit much. Why advertise here?
