I am primarily a musician (full-time arranger and occasional performer), but also love to take photos! How I would love to be able to capture details of trees, etc., against a sunset or in other dark conditions! I have a Canon A510 and a Canon S40, but neither of them can do it, perhaps because there are settings I am unaware of. If anyone can advise me how to get this effect, which I see often in Wunderground photos, I would be very grateful.
Thanksgiving Sunset 09

Caption: A follow-up to the Thanksgiving Sunset I uploaded under my old handle, Shirley, in 2002 - taken with my Mustek VDC-300. Even that trusty old Mustek (which I still use sometimes) was able to capture the colors without using a flash, though. If I turn the flash off, the Canon compensates and makes it look like a daylight shot, whether I use Auto or Night mode. No doubt, I just do not know how to get it to take the pic as it actually looks - without using that flash! Ideas appreciated.
