ya Manual. I'm still tryin to figure out the settings on my camera and have been WAAY to busy to read the manual or anything. i think i am going to get a tripod too cause it looks to me like its just takin long exposures and i'm not that steady. Moon pics are def my favorite ones. i was very impressed with how they turned out. ya i know my rims are dirty, my whole car is dirty it just seems pointless when it rains constantly up here in the fall.
