"RE: DOF?"

First of all, Great Shot! It's nice to be in the right place at the right time.
I agree with Pete's comments. It's is also important to realize that each lens has a "sweet spot" in regard to f-stop where you would achieve the greatest sharpness. This is typically in the middle of the range (f8, f11) but can vary by lens. You can check technical reviews of your lens since they usually provide this information.
Additionally I would recommend to do a focus test. I did one on my D300 after finding that my focus point seemed off. You can make and store corrections in your camera for each lens.
Here is a link to a site with downloadable test patterns that I have used. http://regex.info/blog/photo-tech/focus-chart
