Hi All,

Firstly I am new here and I have just got the Nikon D7000!

I know that this camera is far beyond what i am capable of, my theory is to learn and grow into it rather than to out grow it and have to buy another within a few years!

Ok down to my issue, As my knowledge is basic, go easy on me please - layman speak is best

I have got the 18-55m VR lens attached (the only one i currently have) and I am taking photos both indoor and out.

Outdoor: i took a shot of my street, looking down through houses and cars, once loaded up into my PC and i started to zoom on the pic, the detail was very quickly lost and it became grainy and useless.

indoor: a very similar problem, Took a photo of a model boat and then loaded it onto my PC, started to zoom and the detail was lost very quickly.

I have tried messing with the ISO 100-1600, selected aperture priority and used a larger Fstop (even though I'm not entirely sure on how to set this effectively)

So, how do i take an outdoor shot of my street and then when i load it onto my PC and try zooming to different parts of the image it remains clear and crisp (i.e. a chimney) and secondly, how do i then take a picture of a model boat from standing above it, indoors, so when i zoom in on the detail it remains sharp...?

i hope this all made sense
