Sunsets:

Sunsets follow the same horizon rules, and I usually place the sun where the lines on the rule of thirds grid intersect rather that in the middle. Of course you can use landscape or portrait here, depending on the effect you are trying to achieve. Most cameras have a sunset mode which enhance the colours.

Beach Road never looked so good.

Another horizon shot, with the sailing boat almost on the intersection of bottom and left hand lines on the grid. I placed the boat here to give the effect of it sailing into the photo.

Few times when is it better to change the settings on the camera..

Auto focus modes:

AF-A (usually default) - crap
AF-S (single servo) - great for portraits, landscapes, anything in the bedroom, indoors.. anything that does not move basically.
AF-C (continuous) - great for moving subjects like models on a catwalk or people on the street or fast bikes/ race cars/ sports.

Depth of Field. DOF.

You will often see photos like the one here, where the subject is sharp and the background is blurred. It looks good as the subject is in really clear focus and there are no background distractions. You will need manual controls on your camera to create this effect , so some cameras will not be able to achieve this, and turn the dial to Av or A for Aperture. Rather than me trying to explain how this works I'll leave it to the experts. The tutorials here will guide you through how you can create this type of photo.
