In post #23 I said, in summary:

- you're in auto exposure mode, even though you're using Manual, because you're using auto ISO.

- the image is blurry, because you appear to have shot with too low a shutter speed and either had VC turned off or didn't allow it to settle.

- there are blown out pixels because you have a very bright area of the frame. Because you were in auto exposure mode (per above), you got a "normal" exposure for most of the frame. Because the highlights are MUCH brighter - a situation known as very high dynamic range - pretty much no auto exposure is going to avoid blowing it out. In the post above I gave examples of why the problem is hard to automate; I won't repeat them here. I also explained what Active D-ighting is.

- I noted above that you had stopped down to f/11 which is likely unnecessary and which led to a high ISO 5000 exposure, as well as probably contributed to your relatively low 1/125th shutter speed.

And I also suggested a way of attempting to work around the problem.
