    If you're set on Nikon, a good beginner's rig might be something along these lines:

    Nikon D60 10.2 Megapixel Digital SLR Camera Outfit w/18-55+ 55-200mm DX VR Nikkor Lenses and Nikon School DVDs - Canoga Camera

    (Damn that's a good deal for $589.99!!)

    A nice compact DSLR camera body and a pair of lenses. That's a smoking deal and will give you a good place to start.

    Great Job, Blurker.

    I like both but like VF said, the difference in brightness is noticeable. Nevertheless, great shot.

    The first one really tells a story for me. The sky is bright and beautiful but the world of these two people holding each other is in jeopardy. Pretty neat shot.

    Well, I've finally started culling the rejects from my Lightroom database, and also clearing them off my disk drives. I've probably deleted 2,000 crap images out of almost 20,000...and that isn't even a quarter of the way through the database, either.

    Wonder how much space I'll save when I finally do empty the recycle bin?

    I just removed a lot of programs to make room for photos. I'm only keeping the best shots now because there are so damn many. I might have to go back to when I was saving everything and do some pruning.

    I am amazed myself sometimes. It's strange to get testimonials from nearly everyone I see at Staples Center. What's weird is that I feel like I am just getting started.

    Since most of this is over last year's New Years' resolution to take photography seriously, I'm kind of looking over the last year though and saying, "Dayam".

    I set a lot of goals and reached many of them. This year's resolution should inspire me to push it to the next level.

    This thread helped me so much in picking the right gear. Also, when everyone is telling you that your pics rock, it's kind of nice to have someone say "Hey,, that would look better if you did this" or "Why is the horizon crooked?" or whatever. There is always room for improvement, in fact the more I learn, the more I realize I don't know.

    So THANKS to everyone once again for taking part. It's great to know one can ask a specific question and get quick knowledgeable responses and suggestions without a lot of politics.

    I don't think I've found (yet) anywhere else to get constructive criticism about my images. On Flickr, all you get are sparkly banner type things that scream "AWESOME PHOTO!" in some foreign language that show up in your comments.

    Everyone here kind of pushes everyone else. Some of us have careers in other fields and are looking at this as serious hobbyists. Others, like rinkrat and PuckMonkey, are looking to use photography as their main job. Either way, this thread has created a very useful network for the people that are involved in it on a regular basis.

    So, as it must be time for the yearly "I love you, man" fest that this thread goes through, I'd just like to say, "I love you, man" to this thread and everyone here.
