    So Guys for 2 nights I been testing settings on my new camera and I am a total noob at Photography. I used both nights to test various settings to learn how each one affects each other.

    I shot sunsets from the exact same spot and same angle each shot so I could better see the effect.

    I then used what I learned on the way home from shooting to shoot some geese I saw in a Cemetary.

    The Photos were Shot 20 Minutes after this last shot of the sunset tonight which will let you better visualize the conditions for light etc to give me a full critique.

    Weather:
    22 deg F
    Winds 20-25 MPH
    Lighting Twilight
    Camera setup: Nikon 3500 DSLR with 70-300mm lens no flash manual settings and hand held

    Here is the last sunset image to give perspective on time of night remember the shots were taken 20 minutes after this.

    Any Critiques welcome don't worry about being too harsh I am a big boy and can take it as it is the only way I will become a great photographer.

    I kept pretty much the same settings the full shoot on the geese but I did play with the ISO just to see what happened. These all are direct from camera other than resize no post was done on them
