Hi Thanh. Regarding your question: the unsharpness in this picture clearly comes from movement, not by wrong focus. Looking at your settings, that is not very surprising as you have used a shutter time of 1/20. Why did you choose F22 for your aperture? That does not make much sense here. Perhaps the aperture ring of your lens is locked at F22 and therefore you always have long shutter times (in particular if you use diafragma preference as exposure mode). Please look at your aperture settings of both the camera and your lens and come back to me (or others) if that is not the problem. I hope this is helpful. Regards, Michael.

Oh... I forgot to say something about the tripod. Of course, the tripod should be a very sturdy one, to avoid any vibrations of the camera. Also, if you take pictures with long exposure times using a tripod, I can advise to either use a wire/infrared-shutter release divice or use the timer on your camera. Otherwise you may cause vibrations of the camera by yourself when you press the release button.
