    Hello everyone, its my first post here on The Photo Forum. I recently (4 days ago) bought a Nikon D60. And I have barely even touched a point and shoot camera, so it was a preety big decision and step.Anyways, i would thank you all if you took 5 minutes and commented on these pictures. ALMOST ALL OF THESE PICTURES WERE TAKEN IN MANUAL MODE. I would post the pictures here but then that would only limit you to comment on the one I like, not the ones you like, So ill post my Flickr address.

    Thank you very much! I appreciate it!

    Hello Wiljo_5,
    Good to have you here! Like you I have never owned a P&S and purchased a D50. The photograph of your that stood out the most to me was the Challenger SRT 2009. It just seemed to have a good allover tone to it.
    Hope you learn the other modes in time, I've heard the best way to learn is to try the Shutter, Aperture priority modes and learn how they behave.

    Thanks! And I've tried Aperture and Shutter mode but it seems like i have to change the settings allot so it takes longer to take pictures. But i will definitely be trying to learn to use those modes.

    Any more comments are appreciated, Thanks!

    The challenger photo is great! What amazes me, is that you're more familiar with the manual mode. Aperture and shutter priorities are simpler ;)

    I know lol Its just that i dont know whats the right setting for the right picture in Aperture or Shutter mode (i dont know if it makes sense). Thats why i use Manual. And i have yet to learn the "photography vocabulary" like ISO, Aperture, etc.

    I play with the cameras settings and modes allot. For the "Flower" picture, I used the flower mode in the D60 zoomed in as much as possible out of the stock lens (18-55). For the Challenger pictures i believe I used the manual settings and played with the ISO, etc.
