The door knocker is quite lovely but unfortunately it appears out of focus. Not sure why but you could try increasing the ISO for a faster shutter speed. The image is also a fair bit under exposed. If you look at the histogram, without the border and logo, it falls well short of the rhs. Dragging the slider in to meet the edge of the histogram resets the white point thus making the image brighter and adding contrast.
I hope this helps.

This is camera shake Mario.

Youve used a combination of 70mm and 1/50 sec with a crop factor camera which is too slow.

Heres the way to understand the minimum speed you need to handhold a shot:

Min speed = 1/( focal length * crop factor); so in your case, thats 1/(70 * 1.5) = 1/105, - and since this speed doesnt appear on your camera, then its the next one up, which is 1/120.

So when using Aperture exposre, its important to keep an eye on the shutter speed the camera selects, and if its too slow, then increase your ISO, or open your aperture wider; then check again.

Using an ISO of 400 for this would have meant a speed of 1/100 that might have just worked, but barely.

Hope this helps
