    use nikon macro lens, very sharp, always shoot with direct flash. all photos will be super clear and sharp.

    only use female model 5 years old and below, super smooth skin, easy to start. don't need PS.

    shoot only on sunny day, always place the sun behind you, f16, 1/125, ISO 100, sure you will have all good color and contrast photos. no haze.

    Keep your filters and lenses clean. Any dirt or smudge will reduce the overall sharpness. Especially important in landscape.

    EF50 f2.5 is sharper than EF50 f1.8 or 1.4?
    I have the 100 f2.8, sharp but slow AF. Seldom use it for human portraits. More for my pet spider portraits!

    I normally remove the haze like color cast in the picture using adobe photoshop.
    @ adobe u can use the layer adjustment of level as well as curve.
    But u may need to find the shadow, highlight and mid tone first in the picture.
    then u can use the eye droper tool to click on those three aspects in the picture.
    also before that u may want to adjust the RGB value of it.
    there r more ways of doing it.
    the best form would be merging several picture using HDR. the result will hv huge dynamic range and create a 3 D like picture.

    It sound complicated but once you used to doing it, it comes up natturally.
    don't worry you r not the only one facing this problem.

    hope that may help...

    [QUOTE=Antzzz;3384385]Architecture, Nature, .....[QUOTE]

    For those two categories, you can easily get them out-of-camera. eg :--> http://forums.clubsnap.org/showthread.php?t=296835.
    (however, do note that images uploaded on teh web tend to lose some due to Jpeg compression, esp when some better photographers choose to reduce the quality that way to minimize theft.)

    But learn to get your basics right first. Once you get that settled, the lens matters a lot a lot less. There are several CSers who'd shoot tack sharp with kit lenses (18-55mm type).
