    They both seem very over exposed. The details are completely gone in them. What settings were you using?

    Next time check your ISO setting, don't use auto because your camera is picking the wrong settings

    No, that would of been worse than ISO 1000.

    You should always aim for the lowest possible ISO setting to ensure there is no image noise. If you are getting a shutter speed that is too slow, then you need to up the ISO until its a usable shutter speed.

    Depending on how high the winds are, you could of shot this at a shutter 1/125 and had the same results, thus allowing to bring down the ISO.

    The last shot you were 1/500, F11, iso1000, 55mm, if you had been at
    1/125,F11, iso400 about 3 stops lower i think it would have been closer,
    after you take a shot check your histogram if it's to the right it is over exposed

    you guys are terrific... i have learned so much in such a short time... just because you open my eyes.... i am sorry that i will be here often with bad pics... but believe me it is appreciated.. i am so into this... bare with me.. and you should have seen the way i was dressed today.. i could hardly move.. but i knew that these pics lack the view i saw with my eyes of the lake and all the surrounding nature.. so glad i posted them.
