I took both of these photos today about 15 minutes apart. I didn't think I changed settings between them. Who knows, Im very new to this and don't have a clue what im doing. I have taken some very nice photos with my new fuji S5000 up until today. I usually just set it on auto because I don't know enough yet to make settings.

Here isone of the photos. I'll post the next one and a seperate message

Here is the other one. Can you tell by the Exif data what I have done wrong?

Yes, I can tell you whatwent wrong.

As I originally suspected, the shutter speed is way to slow for your overexposed photo. It's 1/60 of a second at f/6.3. Your properly exposed photo taken before it is using 1/400 second at f/5.

Thereason is that you were in manual exposure (versus Autoexposure) mode, and did not have the aperture and shutter speed selected correctly for the lighting. You can see the exposure mode selected in the "Maker Notes" section of the EXIF for your two photos.

You must have accidently put the camera into manual exposure mode when you took the overexposed photo (and did not select the shutter speed and aperture needed for proper exposure of the image). So, it simply defaulted to values that dramatically overexposed the photo.

In other words, you had the mode dial on "M" instead of "A" for the overexposed photo.

Looking at the photos of your camera model, they are right next to each other, so it would have been very easy to be one position off. You simply had the mode dial in the wrong position.

I agree with Jim C, try and take a little care with your settings, when taking "snaps" to capture a special moment, use the A "auto" functionas you will havelittle time to adjustmanual camera settings to capture that shot.

I thought the camera was set on auto. I must have moved the dial without realizing it. I will be more watchful from now own.
