Good timing has caught the pose, you are just being let down a bit by your lens?

A thought, next time you try something like this (maybe off Avon Beach on your next visit?) set it to shutter priority, dial in 1/1600th - 1/2000th and bang up the iso to 400 (should give you f8 ish)

That may pull more detail out (otherwise - start preparing your case for the 400 f5.6 L Smile )

Thanks for the comments! It's always the same isn't it..... you spend money on a better lens to improve image quality only to find that you still need to spend more to get the perfect resolution.... looks like all roads lead to L-glass :-(
