You've got some nice shots there, I especially like #4, it's quite a great composition. It's interesting though, how at only f/7.1 you could get everything foreground to background sharp. I like the last one as well, the design on those dresses (if that's the appropriate name) are great. Nice job :)

Thanks for the comments, Pierovera.

For the deep DOF landscape you're referring to, I used 9mm at f/7.1 on a m4/3 body. This is equivalent to around 18mm f/14 on a 35mm camera. I was crouched behind the edge of the rice field and focused a couple of metres into it. According to http://dofmaster.com/dofjs.html this creates a DOF from around half a metre to infinity, so everything is in sharp focus. In fact, I could have probably used f/5 and still had sufficient DOF.

One of the benefits of cropped sensors and UWA lenses!

Of course, I forgot that you use a M4/3 camera, how dumb :P
