Vlasal, I couldn't find out what you're shooting with, but the problem with this shot is that it's very soft. Everything looks a little bit out of focus. Since it's not big enough to evaluate very well, I can't be sure whether it's a focus problem or a camera motion problem. Street shots (which this isn't) can afford to have some areas out of focus as HCB's and Frank's work make clear, but this one can't afford that. If you're shooting with a phone, you at least need to hold it still.

Yes, the focus is not perfect and I was moving. But I actually tried to reduce it a bit more in post-production on purpose with the exception of the book.
The camera btw is a Panasonic Lumix 5.

Here is the original image, after cropping.
