the blue fringing is due to chromatic aberration in the lens, and is not uncommon in compact cameras when shooting at larger apertures (this was shot at f4, just one or two stops up from wide open on the S5600). it'smost pronounced in areas with high contrast, andusually goes away when you stop the lens down a bit.

actually, aside from that, and a bit of softness, this isn't bad at all. not sure what caused the soft image - your shutter was fast enough at 1/1000 to eliminate any motion blur (you don't need a tripod if you can get that kind of shutter speed, and if you use the anti-shake mode, you should be able to shoothandheld down to about 1/250 with good results), so the only thing i can think of is that the AF picked a spot ever so slightly off from where you were aiming - that can happen easily enough in a composition with a lot of distracting elements.

i don't know about the zoom... the EXIF for this photo says your focal length was 6.3mm, which is the 1x, or wide-angle position, so either the EXIF is wrong, or you weren't really zoomed in at all. the S5600 goes to 10x,(that's about the equivalent of 380mm on a full-frame camera), which is normally plenty for shots like this.

Thanks for the advice and could you tell me how to get the EXIF?
