    I am not into product shot, but as a normal viewer i feel these are not sharp enough... stop down more?

    for one, the lighting can be improved.. looks like your average "on the table light and shoot" shot..

    if you want to learn to shoot products or table top still life, try shooting some fruits, like apple, oranges, or even some eggs, using lighting to make them looks more 3D on 2D photos.

    this will help you to see how the lighting work on subjects.

    You'll need whiter backgrounds and more even or better lighting. and sharper pictures too.

    From the highlights and multiple shadows, it seems that you are using multiple light sources with different colour casts (I guess maybe the room light and the flash?). The first you may want to look at is to standardize the lighting, because colour casts tend to give products a 'dirty' look.

    Then you may want to study your products more, and look for interesting features to accentuate. Eg, the shapes, the profile views, the texture etc etc.
