Was the original shot a jpg or raw? I am guessing this was shot in fairly low light on an overcast day. There's not much contrast there and the focus is pretty soft. Photoshop's Highlight/Shadow adjustment and tweaking the other levels a tad could have made the image pop. More might be possible with raw.

I am guessing this was shot with the 70-300 and focusing in low light with a slower lens can be a challenge. In that type situation I have no problem kicking the ISO up to 800 or 1250. I'd rather have a noisy image that is sharp than the opposite. You can clean up the noise with Noise Ninga and other similar plugins.

Adjust the ISO as necessary to keep the shutter close to 1/(focal length) as often as is possible.

You're spot on with all your guesses! Thanks.
