Question about Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens
You're seeing blown-out highlights. These are areas of your photo which have been overexposed and lost all detail so they are pure white. This is generally considered a bad thing, and the camera is warning you. It's only a warning, since the camera doesn't know what effect you're trying for. These areas will come out pure white in the resulting photo when you look at it on the computer (and/or when you print it, obviously).
The correct fix is to reduce exposure to bring back the details. This may lead to losing details in the shadows, but that isn't considered to be as bad. After all, we don't expect to see things in the dark.
That was the long answer. The short answer is to repeatedly press up/down on the multiselector to cycle through the different views.
