To get things crisp and clear, I shoot manually and try my best to nail my focus.  I also shoot at a very shallow depth of field and overexpose a few clicks to soften harsh shadows.  This is probably the "softness" people are seeing.  Once I have an image with great focus and beautiful light, I'll enhance everything in post—bump up the contrast where it is needed, do a little painting here and there, and then sharpen, and sharpen some more.
