Question Blurry Night Shots?

I submitted these two shots and they were rejected for being "blurry". I don't see how they are blurry other than the smoke and people. Any advice helps.

The number boards are a tale tell sign that the shot is blurry. I'm not sue sharpening will fix it. Agree that it is also dark, unlevel and grainy.

You are on the right track, there not bad photos but if you shot them in RAW you may have a chance to tighten them up. Otherwise without knowing the exif, I'm guessing lower the ISO to 100, change the aperture up a one and in post procesing level them and lighten where possible. Ken
