Welcome to Nikonians Ric.

I see several things that make this less than optimal.

First, if the time stamp is accurate, you took this at mid-day which is not an optimal time and generally causes harsh lighting and shadows.

Second, it appears significantly underexposed which would lower contrast and make it appear less sharp than it may be.

Third, the full capture doesn’t look all that bad, but at f/14 with a 100% crop on a DX body you are seeing the effects of diffraction which will limit the spatial resolution and make the image appear soft. You can deal with the softness with deconvolution sharpening, but you cannot regain lost detail from being diffraction limited.

Hope this helps.
