Lower light, even a cloudy day, seem to reduce the possibility of sharp focus
Doesn't your cam have a slow shutter warning? CHECK THE EXIF DATA. It will tell you what shutter you were using and if the AF warning came on!

Flat pics on dull days can appear soft and out of focus. Experiment with unsharp mask/ contrast fixes in PS.

I've thought of a situation where this can happen. When I'm printing I set my printer to 300 dpi. The one time I forgot to do that I ended up printing at the same resolution as my screen (about 70 ?) and ended up with large, soft looking prints.

Good point. You know something's wrong when the print comes out real quick. If it takes a minute or two you must be printing high resolution!
