15 seconds is way too much exposure time for anything except night shots, if I'm reading your post right. If you want to play with exposure time, start in Tv mode so that the camera can adjust the aperture for you. In daylight on a tripod, the most you might look for is 1/2 second or so, but play with it. Once you get a feel for this, then try full manual mode and play with both the shutter speed and aperture. The beauty of a digital camera is the instant feedback giving you an indication of what settings you may need to tweak. Good luck,
