    Cool colors. Seems like you focused on the reflection? The lights on the top castle are definitely blown out (add recovery and check histogram). It's a very interesting shot for sure!

    The whites are really blown out. You need to watch the histogram and adjust +- exposure.

    You can shorten the shutter speed, close the aperture or reduce the ISO. All of these things will darken the image. If you're shooting in an auto mode you can adjust the exposure compensation.

    Punctuation is your friend.

    millz, i'll try and explain why the shot turned out like it did. imo, its just as important to know why it didnt work as it is to finding out what to do next.

    when you looked at the scene in real life the reflection was darker than the actual building. what the camera has "seen" as the priority is the reflection, so the camera hs chosen the best possible settings to make sure that the reflection is perfectly exposed. which its done exactly right. as a consequence of that, the brighter part of the image, (the building itself), is slightly overexposed.

    so really, your camera didnt do anything wrong, it just exposed the wrong part of the scene for you. you need to tell the camera what to meter for to make sure you get it exactly how you want.
