get a photography book, read it, experiment with it and practice practice practice. You can also check out www.photography-on-the.net the forums there are a wealth of knowledge, however, they are mostly canon users so you might be slightly joked about for being a noink user :) But seriously, lots of really good information to be had and learned there.
Its ok to experiment and get away from the little green square and move the little dial to M :)
Nice Camera! I have a D200, and it was a learning curve. Out of the box, the photos were not sharp. The menu system is advanced, and so it required setting the "JPEG Compression" to "Optimal Quality," and then "Image Size" to the largest setting. Then set "Image Quality" to "FINE." I'm not sure if the D90's menu is anywhere close to this, but check the owner's manual and walk through the compression, quality, and image size settings among others.
http://www.pbase.com has forums for various cameras. At the top of the page there is a "forum" tab, and then in digital cameras, there should be a selection for NIKON and then the D90. Be aware that some people know what they are talking about, and then other people make comments and remarks that don't carry any weight. You'll be able to sift through those.
Also, just under the green "Welcome to pbase" click on Cameras and you can find yours. You should be able to do as well or better than these... good luck and post some photos for us!
