Taken from across the water from the castle I cropped the picture but wanted to leave some of the close up bushes to show distance.

Its a nice shot. Since the light is behind the castle, the camera has decided to underexpose it, ans since you also added a -2/3, which ensured a good sky exposure, youve ebded up with a decent sky, and an underexposed castle.



This can be sorted out in Photoshop, and the mod I uploaded shows,

It was a difficult, because you needed to chose the sky, or the castle. To choose the castle would have required you to use at least +2/3, rather than the opposite, blowing out the sky, so at least with the approach you took, you ended up with an image that Photoshop can correct!


Hope the mod works for you,



regards

Decent image. The lighting is not ideal due to the sun position. However, you have made the best of it. Most compact cameras allow some control and yo do not need such a fast shutter speed. Set aperture priority. You should be able to go down to at least f8. This will give more depth of field and a more sensible shutter speed.
