With the picture on the bottom, you can see that you focused on the tree in the background instead of the people in front. Additionally, 1/400s for an equivalent of 400mm is a rule of thumb and only works for "average cases".

You should have checked focus and used faster shutter speeds. The aperture of 9 shows that you had enough light for 1/800 and the like.

Out-of-focus areas and shake can cause "watercolor" pictures.

Another case of backfocusing????
