Question Tips on taking sunset photogaphs. Help!

I had a lovely sunset out my front door last night. I grabbed my camera and snapped some pics.

The results...









I dont know how to explain it. They just look funky to me. ISO too high. I dont know what I did wrong. Any ideas?

Darn phone lines....

What is your ISO?

Use a tripod, set your apeture to about f/stop 8, set your ISO to 100. Then let the camera pick the shutter speed. It should work.

Oh yeah, that would definitely screw the picture.

I am actually just learning what aperture is. That is so sad because I've had a DSLR camera for quite some time now.

Haven't had a nice sunset since that pics were taken, darn it. I want to experiment with the aperture settings/f-stop thingie majig.
