OK. I'm in Prague. Its beautiful. Beer and food is great. Prague is a target rich photo environment.

I am trying to take an image of Prague Castle from across the river at night that I would be willing to show someone else. I generally shoot A or S priority. Even P when I think the camera will be smarter than I am. In all above cases the images are overexposed when relying on camera smarts.

A really nice French guy walked by looking over my shoulder. I caught him. We started talking. He's a Canon guy and he started helping me. Go manual and use the A & S settings he used.

Anyway, I'm shooting D7000, 18-200, on tripod. I started getting some decent images at f16, at 1/1.3 or 1/1.6.

Bottom line - I have one more chance tomorrow night. Hoping some of y'all might offer some settings suggestions to give me another chance at this image.

Thanks.
