Advice on these pics please.


I have posted these 3 pics for our resident experts to tell me what is wrong with them. Not from a composition point of view but more a technical one. Some things are not quite adding up. Camera is E1 with 14-54: The pics have been re-sized in Faststone viewer and no PP has been done. Camera settings are default, so no in cam alterations. Flash was FL36: Ideas and advice most welcome.

OK in this pic the left edge of the radio was in line with the far left vertical grid line in the viewfinder ( FS2 grid screen ) and the lower horizontal grid line was in line with the radios lower edge. The radios lines seem distorted ( is this the right word? ) as you look to the right side. The question here is, does my lens have a problem or have I just messed the shot up some other way.

In this picture when I display the original jpeg in Studio either side of the lens cap has an effect that looks hazy/mosiac style. It is hard to see here in this resized version but the RAW file displays this pattern as well. ( I shot in SHQ and RAW mode )

This picture viewed as full jpeg in Studio is quite mushy in places particularly along the bottom segment. The RAW file improves a bit but would still need some work. Also the squares in the four corners show jagged edges and there is rainbow colouring in the finer details.

So really I think it is the radio pic that is bugging me the most. is it the camera, the lens or something else? For the other pics should I be thinking of using a different software package? I have elements 3.1 as well and will view the files there later. Not sure if the exif data has come with these pics as never used Faststone before.

Thanks in advance for any help and advice.
