I know how difficult this subject easy to overexpose such a bright object in the sky. I generally use the exposure compensation or go fully manual to get to three or four stops under exposed.

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Oh, and I'd probably use iso100 or 200.

5 May 2013 12:54pm

@Curly: Thanks, CUrly. Right now all I do is use the auto intell or macro settings for the most part. This one I did use the sunset setting. I bought a book about my camera to learn how to manually set the other features, as you suggest, but it is going to take me a while to figure it all out. Thanks for your helpful suggestions. I appreciate it.
