    What was the shutter speed and lens were you using? If the kit lens, what mm was it set to?

    P.S.
    I like the image, but the crack in the shadow does not work, next time make sure of all the details within the shot.

    1/15 of a second, f5.6, ISO 1600 - That answers your question about why it's not sharp. 1/15 of a second is too slow to hand-hold. Not a lot of critique, other than to suggest more subject and less empty space in the image. Keep practicing!

    ^^ Agreed.

    1/15th of a second = too slow for hand-held, even with IS.
    f:5.6 (55mm) = wide open on the kit lens.
    iso1600 (I assume it was auto?) = maximum auto-iso = noticable noise

    Bottom line: it was too dark. You needed more light, or an even slower shutter and a tripod. You must have very steady hands!
