It's great to have a camera with you at all times. I have just bought a compact to back my dslr up whenever I am not carrying it. Yes, now that you have the bug you will see all sorts of things that you never noticed before.
I don't use f22 very much and you will probably find that is well past the sweet spot of most lenses. f11 to f16 are good for landscape shots and f22 is good for night shots to make street lights look like stars.
You seem to have a good eye for a picture and I think that the more that you get into it, the more you will learn and improve. Try focussing at a spot about one third of the way into your pictures and recompose to get the best depth of field. This will hopefully improve the sharpness throughout.
You are right about the pictures on the forum. There are some truly great ones here. I look forward to seeing your improved shots.
You're absolutely right about having a camera with you at all times. For this purpose I bought a compact bridge which fitted neatly into the glove compartment of my car, but didn't stay there long before it was pinched by my daughter. How do you stop that happening?
The day you think you've found perfection is the day you stop looking, then someone else will find it and move in front of you.
