I found myself with no time to prepare to photo jumping dolphins and didn't do a very good job. I wonder what settings might have been better.

I think I should have a smaller app and maybe spot metering, but I am not sure. Or maybe I should have used the sport setting. I am an old film user and usually go as manual as possible.

Here is the photo. I find the dolphins look very unnatural and oddly out of focus. (even more odd, in this version made smaller to post here the dolphins are sharper).

I've also posted the original in my gallery. Thanks for your suggestions for next time or a similar situation.
