Here is my last picture taken in my garden around christmas.

Very nice. My only critique is that it looks like blacks are clipped.
Indeed, some of the blacks are clipped which you want to avoid.
Here is an example with and without Black Clipping, if you visually look at the image/data, sometimes it isn't that apparent, but the Histogram tells you what actually is happening, the Left Side of the Histogram needs to be near zero to prevent black-clipping anywhere in the image.
With Black Clipping, see left side of the Histogram:
Without Black CLipping, again, see left side of the Histogram:
