You are so welcome, this shot is just so soft, so stunning.
As for the camera we both have the same one of, well...
I've been doing photography for over 30 years, but never had a proper camera until December last year.
So, I never knew how to use a proper one at all. I just go with how I feel as far as my camera's concerned. I set the ISO where it allows, as when on Macro or sports settings for instance, it automatically sets it's ISO for those.
Exposure's a bit of an awkward one, bit fiddly to grasp on this camera, but most shots turn out OK. I set the colour and tones not long after getting the camera and I think I have that OK, seems to be so.
Not sure what you need to know, but I only find a few things useful and helpful from the manual, the rest I just play around with the settings to see what's what.
I don't always use the rule of thirds either, I please myself on that one often, LOL.
Best not to direct the lens at the sun either although we all do that I think, or most of us photographers do for those amazing shots - ruins the lens though so try and avoid it if you can. I have done it a few times now, but trying not to.
Hope you enjoy your camera, it is a lovely one to use.
