I finally broke down and used some of our tax return to invest in a good camera. I got the Nikon D3000 which is not the top of the line by any means but a big step up from my cool pix camera. I am so in love with it. I have so much to learn I don't even know where to start but this camera is blowing my socks off. Here are some pics I took that I have not even edited in photoshop.
