A couple things I notice here.

1. Looks like the 6D image is cropped. This will reduce quality

2. There is a huge depth of field difference. The 6D image is shot at f/4. The T2i image is shot at f/5.6. A crop camera gains an extra stop of DoF so essentially you are comaring f/4 to f/8. The lens is both sharper and has a greater depth of field in the T2i picture because of that.

Thank you for the response . I took these pictures at F4 and F5.6 on 6D and T2I respectively as my 6D takes sharper picture at F4 and T2I takes sharper picture at F5.6 .

But you're comparing apples & oranges.  By shooting at a smaller aperture on the T2i you've given it a very, very large advantage.  Shoot images at f/5.6 on both cameras and do the comparison again, and don't crop the 6D image.
