Have been shooting with Olympus C4000 Zoom. This is the original, unaltered photo. Just got lucky! Thanks for your reply. Carla
Here is my Sunset Out My Window, any comments?
That's a different photo. This one has a bigger sun, no clouds or tree, no lake, etc.
I don't know your camera so can only offer general advice.
1. Set ISO low.
2. Point far away from sun to get exposure setting, keep button half depressed, recompose and shoot. That is, expose for the sky not the sun. Let the sun be over exposed.
3. Don't take direct photos of the sun. I believe it can damage your camera's sensor.
