Goodbye Nikon D60

Hello Nikon D5000......My trusty D60 served me well, I took some great pics not only was it just a 3 focal point system but it allowed me to expand and learn, I would recommend this camera to anyone who is starting out!!, it is user friendly, and shoots beautifully, its light weight and very reliable, I have had it or over 5 years, and its gotten me this far :) Ideally a full frame is in the wish list, but cant have it all right now :)    I was tossing between the D5000 or the D3100.....decisions decisions!!  due to the market I have moved into, I am strictly photography with my cameras, and after reading many forums and reviews the decision was made with the help of my technical husband ... "demetris". not only is it affordable, but it takes wonderful pictures, and a lot more user friendly :) If you want to see photos I have taken with the D60, take a look at my portraits and senior sessions on my website  marielacampbell.com

Here are some random photos I've taken with the D5000, I will include my processing steps with Kubota Actions through PhotoShop :)
