Eric, now I see why your pictures are so bad, it's hard for you to get a steady footing with all those trays of plants around. I'd take the same kind of pictures if I was trying not to step on this tray or that tray also.
Eric - I'm not picking on you but I have to agree with Todd. I'm SOOO happy with my new Nikon 40X. It was soo fustrating to take picture after picture & delete, delete, delete. Another thing that might help - the background is in focus but not your subject, so 1)you're too close as Todd indicated & 2) if your camera has auto focus, it's got too many objects to focus on!
