These are great. Well done!

Question: Why did you shoot at 1/30th @ f/14? You may have a great reason for doing so, but if not, diffraction, lessening sharpness, sets in on your lens past f/11. Plus, a smaller aperture necessitates a longer shutter speed, increasing likelihood of shake.

The sweet spot, aperture wise, on your lens is between f/8-f/11.

Interesting you ask

I bought the D7000 on a whim on new years eve as I wanted to get into a hobbie (I did photography for one year at design school in the early 80's and nothing since
It a hangover from then when I had a film camera and shutting down to f22 was the ideal for landscapes (at least that is how I remember it)

I have been trawling forums etc with gusto since and actually about 3 nites ago, after I got back from holiday I read that stopping down 2 stops was the ideal and not the old standard
So now I'm trying to remember the new factoid

Cheers for the insite

The sweet spot varies from lens to lens, but is usually in the f/5.6 to f/11 range.

With the Sigma 50mm f/1.4, the sweetspot, for sharpness, is around f/4.

It depends on the lens. Generally, 2 stops from wide open gets you well inside the ball park. But there are exceptions. The Sigma 8-16mm is best from wide open to a stop down...
