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

Exposure: program (auto) thanks for all the help.. i set and reset the settings.. probably mixed up now... HELP!! also it was snowing heavy ... and wind was whipping... but i want decent pics ..so appreciate help..
Next time check your ISO setting, don't use auto because your camera is picking the wrong settings
thanks so much... will do...would 3,200 have been okay to use?
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
thanks very much... i will try this tommorrow.. probably different weather conditions.. hopefully not as rough.. yes the winds were whipping.. making it totally bad to read the camera too..
thanks thanks. now this gives me a foundation to work with..
Next time, try not to crop off any tree tops.
Good luck and dress warm!
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.
