R5 / portrait question

Camera: Canon R5

Lens: RF 15-35 2.8

my experience with R5 body -- about 1 month

Shooting: Model on the other side of a pool (indoor pool)

I'm newish to the R5 and taking portraits with it.

I think I set it up correctly for Eye detect for humans.

Sadly, my image results from this past weekend shoot seem soft.

I was about 20 feet from my model, I was using about the 30ish mm on the lens

My settings:

IS = on

ISO = 100

SS = 1/100

F = 5

Eye detection = Enable

AF operation = Servo AF

Subject to detect = People

Face + Tracking

Some of the images I can tell auto focused on the background and not the model, some I can't tell where it focused on.  While shooting The auto focus had a bit of issue finding the models eye.

my question is:::: Are my setting correct?  Am I missing a setting?  Is this just a case of LOW F# and 35mm and distance and me shooting when the focus wasn't on the subject.

I just feel like there are a few too many "un sharp" images for this shoot to be ALL me.
