You mean the pronounced shadow in the upper right of each photo? That is interesting. Is it normally there at the time you took these photographs, i.e. 9:00pm (or whatever)?
Would it be possible for you to take another shot to show what it looks like normally?
btw, turn the focus ring until it all looks sharp, or press down softly on the shutter button until it beeps. You probably know that
The lighting is different in both pictures, so I was going to say that maybe the camera automatically adjusted for the brighter light therefore making the shadow longer, but I can't help notice that the far wall in the picture with the longer shadow is actually brighter than the other one!
Of course, you may not be talking about the shadow at all

Try this..put the camera on something. I'm sure it has a timer.. But put it on something so that it angles to show up the stairs..set the timer..and let it take the picture by itself..if it still comes out blurry then there's something wrong..but if it doesn't..I'm sure the fact that you were a little shaky and nervous is a pretty good explanation.

Judging by the amount of color noise in the image the camera was either under 1 mega-pixel or it was shot in low light with incorrect settings or to achieve that effect. That is neither a motion blur nor an out of focus blur. Taking it to the pixel level it appears to be either gaussian blur or a surface blur. I'm betting on gaussian which even the cheapest software can do. It gives that moody, glow like effect. I use a similar effect occasionally for background images myself. I am 99% sure this is post processing. Sorry.
The ceiling near the top of the stairs has been obviously altered. It looks like it was done with a clone tool or a healing brush used improperly. The strokes are visible without enhancement. Very poorly done in fact.
