Default First ever shot with a DSLR

No tri-pod yet, it's in the mail so I had to shoot again a railing. I used my Canon Rebel XTi with the kit lens. I would appreciate any input, I am really new to photography so please be detailed in your suggestions. Suggestions for exact settings would especially helpful as I plan to shoot the sunset/sunrise more to gain experience in the various shooting styles and ISO, Av, Tv settings.

Tv : 1/30
Av : 8.0
Exposure Compensation : 0
ISO : 800
Focal Legnth 25.0 mm
White Balance in Auto Mode.

Nice colors, but you need a tripod to shot this kind of tricky landscapes. Why don't begin with something easier?

I recently bought a tri-pod just waiting for it to be mailed. What would be the correct settings for shooting a sunset/sunrise?

Interesting glitch going on with the pic. Top left corner is a miniature thumbnail embedded in the sky.

Hi snowave-

Looks good! Level the photo and use some minus Exposure Compensation.
