It was after 1800 and overcast, was it the ISO at 320 that caused this photo to not be as sharp as I had hoped?

If I keep the ISO at 100, which I prefer, and use exposure compensation, what changes, shutter speed or aperture? I guess what I'm asking is how exposure compensation works.

If I use exposure compensation, does the meter in the viewfinder reflect the compensation or is this a trial and error procedure?

Also, I've been asked by a friend of mine to take photos at the dive meet he is organizing; it's tomorrow at the same time as this photo was taken. I told him I'm a beginner in photography; if anyone has any suggestions, please let me know. (I have considered skipping town and hiding, but I told him I'd do it)
