Manual or aperture I guess & dial in some -EV (try -1 first, then adjust as necessary)

I think shooting manual without experience could get some lousy shots. :( I would suggest program mode so you can see what the camera selects for the shot, using this as a baseline you can then adjust setting to your needs. :D

I agree with Carlos, dial in some -EV.

I have been using the manual focus to get awesome sunset photography snaps.
