Default Sold D5000 got a D90

Hi all,

As the title says I sold my Nikon D5000 and got a Nikon D90. I should really have got the D90 in the first place for the internal motor. I was always happy with the images out of the D5000 but I have some lenses which just wouldn't auto focus on the D5k so I went and got the D90 which was my original choice.

I've not had much chance to use it but have been out a couple of times. Here are a few photos taken with the D90 along with Sigma 10-20mm F4-5.6 and Nikon 18-55mm VR. I also used either a B+W 110 filter or Cokin ND or Cokin ND grads.

Good shooting! Next you should consider shooting raw and processing with Nikon Capture NX so you can bring up the shadow detail using D-Lighting!

If you're shooting RAW, there's no need for D-Lighting.

ETA: Nice set. I have a visceral gag reaction to cotton-candy waterfalls, but the composition of the first shot is excellent by my lights. I think what Bob was concerned about is, e.g., the lack of detail in the foliage of the boat-at-low-tide shot. I think he's right about the need for bettter detail in the dark regions to make that (again, compositionally excelllent) photo work to its full effect.

Tclune interpreted my comments correctly.

D-Lighting is also an action in Capture NX that allows controlled correction on the shadow detail, especially in advanced mode.

I think the D90 will be considered a classic. Had mine two years and I am very happy with it. My friend recently bought a 5100 and is missing the internal focus motor and top mounted LCD screen.

The OP could have made these images with even he cheapest dSLR from Nikon, Canon, Pentax or Sony. The camera has little to do with it... he's clearly a capable landscape shooter.
