    Can you post some pictures so we can get an idea of what your talking about? If we can see an example we might be able to help you.

    maybe you're having an issue of back or front focusing.

    Posting an example shot along with the EXIF data would get much better help for you.

    Without actual examples, its near impossible to see what is going on.

    Too shallow dof, wrong focus point, camera shake, slow shutter,...

    Plenty can go wrong when using auto. If you give us a couple of samples that have the EXIF data, we can give you some pointers on how to improve your images.

    Were you using auto focus point? Like let the camera determine which point to focus.

    There is that little dial you initially adjust to your eye/vision when you first get your camera. Did you do that?

    Completely unrelated to the issue when auto-focus is being used.
