I really enjoy this style of photograph, Kimi, and I can't help noticing that you have used this one to head your portfolio page.
At first I thought it displayed an old brass camera or projector lens with the sliding cap moved to one side; a closer look suggests that it is in fact a spy-hole in a door (yes, I have read the title!)

You have already used a fairly high ISO while the lens is at its maximum aperture. Without a lot of practice and experience it is phenomenally difficult to hold even a moderately short telephoto steady enough at 1/10th of a second to achieve a sharp image; most people would like to see this one just a little sharper as it is not entirely clear what we should be looking at (I think it is the faint image on the lens of the spy-hole). Given the style of the image it would be worth taking a risk and setting the ISO much higher, perhaps 3200 (which would give you a shutter speed of 1/40th second - much less likely to cause camera movement) or even 6400. You have a good camera and interesting ideas: just keep experimenting!

Best wishes,

P.S.: Have you considered uploading to ephotozine's Critique Gallery? The critique team devote lots of care and thought to helping both beginners and more advanced photographers to improve their photography.

Thank you so much Bill for that. It means a lot Smile I took this photograph on the second day after I started my photographic journey and I shot almost everything in my home at that time.
I didn't consider the Critique Gallery but now, I will. I am sure it would be of great help.
Thanks again!
