This is from a vacation this summer in Paris shot with my cell phone.

Yesterday i bought my very first DSLR (Nikon d5100), and i'm excited to turn it loose.

Even though I'm a Canon guy, Nikon still makes some great equipment. Best piece of advice I can give you is read the manual and when you're done, read it 2 more times. One thing I did for some features that I seldom use, but would like to on occasion is I put little sticky tabs on the page of the instruction booklet that references the feature I want to use. There's a site called DPReview that has some message board forums that is full of all kinds of useful information.

Thank you for the advice. I think i've spent a month on various photography forums (including dpreview.com) for advice and guidance for an affordable entry-level DSLR. I bought an 18-105 mm zoom lens to go with the body.
