I got a Nikon D90 off the wife for Christmas :D , I am waiting for a couple of new lenses to arrive but have been playing around with the basic lens that came with the camera.

These are very nice. I've got to experiment with my white-balance controls some more. Your pictures look very natural.

Cheers Martin, I have the white-balance set on auto for now but I have been playing with the ISO and took these set on 800 :)

Great shots Duff, thanks for sharing. If that's what you're doing with the factory lens I cannot wait to see what you do with new lenses 8)

Just keep clicking MD. Beautiful snaps and plumpy fishes! :D
Just a tip, F8 with a fast shutter @ ISO 350 is a sweet spot of the cam with that lens for fish! :wink:

Very Nice pictures MD. I am very impressed of the quality of the D90 at ISO 800, I see no noise. Very cool!!

Nice upgrade Mark - What lenses do you have coming??? A 60mm and a 105mm Micro I guess. I have the 60mm and just love it and it can be used for much more than close-ups. You will be needing a flash as well so the SB900 will be next on your wish-list - just love mine.
Cheers Graeme.
