The angle from which the photograph was taken could be somewhat misleading in regard to the tail length and wing length. See the various photographs of a Great-winged Petrel from La Jolla, CA. One gives a similar profile to the bird you photographed, while most appear to show a longer winged bird and one with a longer tail.
