im having problem with my digicam.. i cannot get a good shot during night specially when inside a bar (dim lights). all of my shots wre useless. when i used flash, the backgrounds were gone only the person i took pictures can be seen but too bright. I already adjusted the exposure but it seems still not a good picture. Also during the day when the sun is too high i cant get a right shot. some were too bright.. can you help me with my settings. there must be a right settings for that and I cant figure it out.. I'm not a digicam experts so im not that too knowledgeable when it comes to blending the settings..Thanks

The circles can bve from several causes. Most common would be reflection of the flash off dust particles or precipitation in the air. Other possible causes, especially given the streret lights in the picture, would be lens flare, or there could be dirt/dust on the lens. BUT I suspect the primary cause is backscatter of the flash' light from airborne particles.
You'll usually find that flash shots give you a brightly lit subject against a black background unless you choose to use one of the creative zone settigns and let the camera give a good background exposure at a longish shutter speed, using the flash to stop motion of the primary subject.
The daytime shots along the train line seem to have been taken from inside the train, and between a dirty window and reflections off the window from the car lights, you've got a loss of saturation to deal with. The urban street shot doesn't look bad at all. You might have a slight overexposure which would give a washed-out look.
What mode(s) have you been shooting in?
