It is not the camera or the lenses...i think

I checked your website too ( quite fast)

There are several images that have absolutely no technical = camera or lens problems and they just "pop" as much anyone else's images. It might be something else.

You are shooting quite often  with the lens wide open or quite open - quality of a lens is very often at its peak around f 5.6-f8.

And sometimes the backgrounds are not good - they just kill the subject... it is the photographer who makes the composition. Sometimes it is just impossible.

Bright sunny days  (around noon) are not  good for photography -  results are often quite flat- whatever we do.

I can not say anything about your PP skills - perhaps there is some fine tuning to do?

Bottom line:

I do not believe you should return or sell you camera. Perhaps you can borrow someone else's DSLR camera and some other photographer can use your camera for some time, as a short test  ... then you know
