I don't know in the morning to you is early before sunrise, after sunrise, or bright daylight.... You used b settingat high ISO 400 is way out of range.

Set the camera in A (Auto) and half press the shutter, aim at the same scene, look at the exposure value in the viewfinder.

Turn the dial to M mode, copy the same shutter speed and aperture to set the camera. You get the pictures, not perfect but better than blanks,your camera is ok.

B mode is mostly for low light shots, not for bright daylight.

To take pictures in manual mode you need to understand the shutter speed and lens aperture relationship. There are many topics show you how to do this on the internet or just pick up a basic photography book to learn at your own pace.

Learn how to use the gray card, if you don't have one, use a newspaper, it's close enough to a gray card. Digital don't have a wide latitude to play with like print film.

Here is a brief discussion about the gray card.
