Why do my brakes suck?

Although I don't expect hydraulic disc performance, my brakes seem a bit crap and riding in the wet can sometimes be a nerve-wracking experience. Set-up is Tiagra levers, Jagwire inners/outers and Tektro R350 Dual pivot calipers.
I keep my rims good and clean too.

Is there anything I can do to significantly improve performance? I was thinking of a different compound pad or summat. Will upgrading the calipers make a significant difference?
