Noted. The last photo is somewhat parallel. Thanks.
perused your manual ...
1 - MACRO mode does nothing other than continuously focus. since you are on a tripod, that feature could be off
2 - AF mode - you want to be in MANUAL or CENTER.
your AF system automatically focuses in the center and looks for faces.
so either manually focus or use the center and make sure you have the object in the center focus point. do not use AUTOmatic (It likes to look for faces). Technically it should work, but if you have the option of controlling it yourself and focus where *you* want it to focus, you might as well.
3 - consider turning ON the High Sensitivity Mode. This will increase ISO above 100 to improve exposure unless you add more light. These small sensor cameras have flash for a reason.
read your manual and learn it's limitations and features ==> https://cdn-10.nikon-cdn.com/pdf/manuals/coolpix/S550_en.pdf
