What camera are you using and are you doing any post work? If I can ask.
Camera: I use a Panasonic GF2 + 20 mm f 1.7 lens. It's a little bit old but I got attached to her and it's difficult to end the relationship, though i have secret thoughts about other cameras :).
Settings: aperture priority, usually at f2.2-2.8 (depending of the number of subjects in the pic), custom WB (5350 k) and ISO 100
Post: I use lightroom just to give a bit contrast (+10), clarity(+20), less highlights (-30), adjust WB if needed and resize (720 short edge).
