    Well I got the Nikon D90 for christmas this year. It was the body with a whole bunch of accessories like the bag and tripod and such, just no lenses. So, Im using the Nikon 28-80mm F3.3-5.6 Nikkor lens that came with the N65 I also had before this one. So, big upgrade. In two days, I have taken these. Tell me what you think. All of these are straight from the camera with no modification besides adding the border and watermark in Photofiltre.

    All of the photos that say flash used, it was the built-in flash with a paper towel wrapped around it. obviously, I still have to get the hang of these things. Tell me what you think. Thanks.

    Well, I think you're off to a very good start.
    In most, the white balance is still heavily on the yellow side (don't know what your settings were - were they set to incandescent? Or to AWB, and the tissue brought the yellow colour into the pictures?), but focus is nice (a little too shallow in 2), you obviously interact nicely with your "models", and I can tell that you're having a lot of fun with your "new toy"! And your aunt has a nice cat. One that allows you to take its photo! I assume it is WHITE and not yellow, but we had that already ;) .

    I had it set to AWB, her lights were very low wattage florescent lighting so the whole room looks yellow. All the time. So, thats why they look yellow. I am having a blast. Just found the 'image overlay' tool. I like them alot. Any suggestions for further shooting is much appreciated. Thanks
