That is a nice camera.

I picked up a D40x, the day before a trip to Alaska. read the book on the plane.

a few years later, learned that they do not like to be dropped any distance. keep a hand on that strap.

I dropped the original zoom from my lap in a rental car to the parking lot, trashed the lens.

later my wife bumped and dropped it about a foot with a larger telephoto on, and cracked the lcd screen and glass on the back. was able to replace it, but was a task.

here is my favorite non-granddaughter photo. from a canoe in Mason Neck VA.

there seem to be two schools of thought, set up the photo carefully, or take a lot and sort them out later. both ways are fun.

Hope it gives you years of joy and plenty of good photos to look back on.

So, for those nice nightime shots, did you use a tripod, or set it on something?

Set on whatever I could find lol iPhone used to raise camera level. just messing with shutter tilli get the look I want I really like the over exposed train shot that technique seems to only work in LOW and Far light situations. Took this one last night
