Experiences with extension tubes?

I started playing with inexpensive Viltrox extensions. Having quite some fun (I love flowers, so it's easy to find things I like to photograph), but I can't quite get a grip on image quality.

I own just the kit lens, the 22 and the 32... and the 32 seems to give the best results (the 22 is just rather unusable due to the small working distance). Still in a lot of cases image quality is pretty ugly, and I cannot understand if it's me who is doing something wrong or if it's just that these lenses are not working well with tubes.

Someone has experiences in this direction with these lenses?

(pic from the 32, I guess around f6 if I remember, of a myosotis so rather close. I tried also more DOF of course, but I didn't quite like it and it didn't seem to improve a lot the sharpness anyway. Oddly.)

Feel free to criticize me wildly, I know I'm doing something badly wrong here.
