Found another photo that was ok,
Ah, Cause I'm learning all this stuff now, and plan on going to go to college for it (the reason for the camera). Now that I think about it I think I have a metering like setting, I can put it in automatic, and it has a kind of Rectangle with 9 dots in a Diamond shape, I can select which one and it will focus on what ever it finds in that area. But It could be the manual metering mode, I need to do more reading!
Thanks for your help
