Hold the camera steady on the subject for a second or two before snapping the photo with less than half of the picture taken above the horizon (aim low, not high). This should render better pictures.

Hi whenever i try to take photos in the sun like on the beach they come out really dark please help

Please check the light settings and change from high sensitivity to even a manal mode or a bright sunlight setting.
It is possible that the incident light is too powerful and so changes the auto light sensor to give a correction to the CCD so as to make it less brighter.
You can also try and use filters that can reduce the glare but give a better picture contrast.
If not use the manual mode, correct the speed and aperture.

I have a CQ56 compaq and do not know which type of screen to order a matte or a glossy screen.

The Two Kinds of LCD Monitors lens1946174_1208282041macbook-matte-screen1.jpg There are two kinds of modern LCD screens: matte (anti-glare) and glossy. Both have their pros and cons and are a subject of many discussions.

Matte screens don't get glare or reflections on them; however, the same rough surface (polarizer) that reduces the intensity of reflected light results in less contrast and brightness since the light from the LCD screen passes through it. Matte screens diffuse light instead of reflecting it so they might be easier to read outdoors, if the backlight provides enough brightness. You don't have to worry as much about reflections as with a glossy screen.

Glossy screens have vibrant colors and the highest contrast and brightness because they have a smooth, high-gloss surface. As a result, it is often the choice for movies or gaming. However, strong lighting causes glare on these screens which is very annoying and may tire your eyes if you have to stare at it all the time. You can also see reflections on the screen. Some graphics designers may also find the colors inaccurate. Glossy will work great for you if the lighting in your room doesn't create any glare on the screen.

I have a 2004 corvette conv that does not display the a/c control or outside temp. I can see it at night, but it is not bright enough during the day to see. a friend suggested checking the fuse, but...

Check that your headlight switch is not on. They have an automatic dimming feature for night driving that reduces glare from the instrument cluster.

Back lights are dim on speedometer, odometer

You probably checked this, but sometimes we forget.
The dial on the dashboard to the left of the instrument panel controls the brightness of the instrument panel lights. Turn the dial to adjust the brightness. Also, to reduce glare at night, the fuel and temperature gauges dim when you turn on the parking lights or headlights. You then adjust their brightness when you adjust the instrument panel brightness.
Turn the dial up as far as it will go to return the fuel and temperature gauges to their daytime brightness.
I hope helps and it's that simple for you.

Cluster goes dim when i turn the lights on

your dash lights should dim when you turn your running lights on. This is to reduce the glare for night time driving. There will be a dial on the dash near the cluster that you can adjust the brightness of your interior lights

Pink circles and glares with sunset photos

It may have to do with the black ring. (think football players). I'm guessing either that or the more sensitive, noisier CCD is to blame!!! Good Luck!!!
