A lot of the photographers on this site probably could be professionals, but many are just very passionate amateurs. You're in a win-win situation no matter what you decide. The D90 is an awesome camera in its own right. The D7000 offers more features and capabilities so upgrading would be a great move as well.The only reason the D7000 would be overkill is if you left it on Auto and used it as a point and shoot.
