    thank you

    but wouldnt the pics be over exposed if i went with a high f stop?

    would i then have to speed up the shutter?

    higher number smaller opening
    smaller opening, greater depth of field, less light
    you have to lengthen the exposure to compensate and will benefit greatly from using a tripod or setting the camera down and using the timer

    Cyrilgrey's right

    Also, make sure your horizon's straight Don't forget the rule of thirds either...keeping the horizon centered make it more look like a snap shot rather than a good photo.

    Picture 3 shows some sizeable dust on your sensor. (those little circles in the sky). You may want to clean the sensor off in your camera, or at least clone out the circles in photoshop.
