I gave a friend my D80. This is his first SLR camera. He reads and speaks his language well, however, he is not skilled in English so the manual I gave him is not helpful.

Here is a photo he took. I did not use the AUTO mode as he did, so I do not know it's characteristics. Does Auto overexpose? Here is a shot he took:

I will explain to use Aperture priority and I'll explain how to use the histogram to check exposure. We are both curious to know why all of the pictures he took are overexposed.
