Hi,Larry E-30 here;I think the test sunset is impressive,especially that there is light and detail ON THE SAND (that it didn't come black),and I think (I would) crop (some) off the top.I'm giving myself more freedom to use many controls/modes.!...and I'm liking it!!But I (too) keep going back to P or S ...and dept is SO SHALLOW gotta go back to A too.But A is reversed from P and S (in adj.wheel - to change settings).I like pushing the wheel to the right to bring down the appiture to f/22 way (IN ANY MODE I'M IN).I have been an A shooter from P+S cameras - I needed to come to faster shutter speeds ... now w/SLRs I need more DOF. The D5000 seems like a pritty good camera.And my kit came with two Nikon school DVD's!!!AND THEY WERE BOTH GOOD.Got mine in Costco.
