Company Boat Cruise...My First Photos

Last night was my first time out with the new camera. We had our annual company cruise on Lake Lewisville. My company rented a catamaran and set sail for a sunset outing. It was a relaxing night once the blazing hot sun went behind the horizon. I was able to get a few good shots...and some pretty bad shots too.
Things I learned:
(1) Need a better flash than what comes on the camera...too hard to get good night portraits.
(2) Need to remember what all the different mode abbreviations mean...couldn't seem to remember the difference between Tv and Av on the dial.
(3) I have a lot more to learn.

Tv=shutter priority, Av=aperture priority. Stick with M, you will have better results in low light when you control both manually ;)
