Natalie I love that last shot. On the first shot you might have had the camera on an auto mode? The camera was metering for the bright sun so the rest of the photo came out dark.

You can meter by pointing the camera at a more neutral area, like the canoe and make sure the sun is not in the frame and take note of what those settings are. Now put your camera in manual mode and use those settings to capture the scene. This of course will not render the sky almost white and you will lose detail in the sky.

Scenes like this really exceed the capability of your camera to capture all the ranges of tone in your shot. You could take a few more shots and go -1 and -2 steps under and over and blend them together later in post processing. Or if you had a Graduated Neutral density filter which will darken the top half of the photo you could possibly get better results.

Keep experimenting and play with your camera settings. Watch your histogram and it will give you some clues to what is happening exposure wise to your scene.

    • She cant stand Needs a chair to sit on Clint happens to have a nice one.  You might be too old to get this then but don't blame your lack of comprehension on anything but yourself. Maybe your heart meds need tweaking or alzheimers is kicking in?
    • most reports in this area very poor way to much water  
    • Lone wolf but they are expensive. Muddy brand is not bad!
    • I bought the work shop and like it, It dose take a little practice from not pushing down to hard on the knife wihci allows it to drop below the guide, pluse the arching of the tips of knives can be challenging. I know theres an tension adjuster but it only adjust so much, go use kid gloves it seems. but i do like it
    • I'm up on it.  But bring on the translator.  I don't speak stoner.
    • Try to keep up with the conversation. If you need a translator let me know and I can try to round one up.
    • My WorkSharp arrived last week and I have been very impressed with how quick and easy it is to use and how nice it is to once again have kitchen knives that can cut 1/16-1/8 inch tomato slices with ease.
    • I actually wanted Ted but I considered him Lying Ted because of his agreement to support the nomination and he didn't until now.  Switching things around I would be voting Trump with a D behind his name then.  You are the crowd-follower who would be voting for any candidate with the L behind his name including Hillary.   Glad we agree you are supporting Hillary and will own everything she does if she wins.
    • Gary Johnson is not the solution to any of those issues has he has zero chance of winning.  Get your tin foil hat ready for the nuclear holocaust.  By the way who said spending and the deficit isn't on the list as I said I just named a few?  So as usual in your elitist way of thinking you are wrong again.
    • All I know is that the local gun shop was packed today and I was told that I would probably have to wait until after the election to have any chance of finding what I'm looking for. Sheesh people........haven't you already buried enough guns in the backyard over the last 8 years?
