Camera: Rebel XTi + Canon 50mm 1.8 II

I have good sharpness on Macro subject but when I take pictures of object far from camera (even 2 meters) the quality isn't that good, added some pictures please look and tell me your opinion, is it the camera or maybe a defective lens, or maybe my imagination.

What specifically do YOU think is wrong?

The pictures look fine, except they are over-exposed and not very interesting.

I have to agree with the others, they look ok to me. If you are using the lens wide open, at f/1.8, which I know these examples where mostly atf/3.5, butyour depth of field is pretty shallow, so the area of the scene that would be tack sharp would be pretty small.In bright sun such as these try using the sunny 16 rule, stop the lens down to f/16 and set your shutter speed to what ever yourISO is set too.
