Re: One of the first pictures I ever made with a DSLR, how to get all sharp?

First you need to know your tools limits. For example your camera can be perfectly sharp at ISO 1600 and even 3200. Don't be scared to use 1600 if you need to achieve a faster shutter speed. Your lens should be sharp at F11. However, some lenses are sharper than others. Don't expect miracles from a 200$ kit lens.

Obviously, if you use a tri-pod you dont need to worry about shutter speed anymore.

Honestly you should be shooting RAW as post processing is an important factor in todays photography. I personally use Lightroom and think its great. It doesnt take as long as you think. I can do a basic edit, color correction sharpening in 30 secs.
