Also I did realized that the ambient exposure on the shot I provided was underexposed and not overexposed, I thought anything on the right of - 0- was overexposed. I have also just realized I can compensate for the over/under exposure (silly beginners mistake). I have had this camera for over a year now but I am just recently starting to use it and tinkering with the different settings due to the birth of my baby girl, where as before I would just take pictures outdoors and in full Auto. I guess this is how I will actually learn how to properly use my camera. . Also getting help for the great members here, but yeah using flash will require a great deal of practice.
