That's some good advice! I haven't really messed with the f stop that much; I've just been familiarizing myself with the other manual exposure settings. I should start learning new things though :). Thanks!

You could drop the ISO from 200 to 100 or whatever's your camera's minimum, then you'd need to double exposure-times, ie, 1/1000 would be about same exact exposure as this.

But you could just close it up to f/8 or so, then you'd have 3 stops more to play with, or 8 times the exposure-time needed, so 1/125 would be the same.

f/8 would also give a wider DOF, letting more be in-focus over a wider range of distances.

The water close-in is nicely in-focus, so keep that, and you'd get what's in the distance a little crisper.

Well howdy, neighbor! You are pretty close to me, haha. The reason for the fast shutter was because the sun was actually really bright at the time I was shooting and after experimenting with some shutter speeds, I found that the 1/1000 gave the best image as far as color was concerned. Anything slower than that was turning out overexposed and 1/2500 was just too dark. I wish I could have used my tripod, but this shot was taken on my way to work and I didn't have time to set it up. I'm still learning about the aperture settings and I appreciate the advice that you've given! :)

I have an open pasture to my east and can see the sunrise every morning and photograph a few of them. You also have water to work with. I noticed from your EXIF data that you used a wide open aperture and a fast shutter. I find that I get better results shooting from a tripod with a small aperture and a slow shutter speed; seems to reduce flares around the sun. A 10 from your neighbor in Alvin.
