White balance test- they all seem unsharp (blurred) I wonder if it is by camera shake or...thanks

We may need to re-shoot them, although we have already re-shot this set of images once. Cheers.
Thanks for this early review!
But I think there's a problem with the WB shots:
Was there a reason that you used F5.6?

With small sensors in compact cameras, F2.8-3.5 is usually best for maximum sharpness. Smaller apertures will cause blurring due to diffraction.

We will be re-shooting these shots (next week). The original WB shots were shot with a brighter aperture and were much softer, so we are investigating.
