Very nice, but just some advice...

Replace the lens as soon as you can(trust me, thank me later), lose the HDR software(contrast is your friend).

AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR is a good lens and a great substitute for that focal range. It's a little pricey, but that's to be expected for Nikkor glass. The kit 18-55 lens from the D80/D90 kits were garbage and Nikon got a lot of shit for it. Everything from the plastic mount to the softness on the focal ends means just about anything is better.
Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8-4.5 DC OS HSM is also a great option with a slightly-less price tag.
There aren't many options in that zoom range to be quite honest. It's always better just to get lenses for each purpose versus an all-around lens.

or the older version...........

Odd most review sites praise it for ease of use for beginners. I have both versions and taught a few new users on these lenses. Nothing bad about them.

Thanks,

im sorry but that overdone HDR looks anything but nice. im sure the pictures as they shot look a lot better! You should first, stop using HDR. You can do something similar on photoshop that doesnt look fake. you got good angles, id love to see the original photos.
Dont take it the wrong way, I am just trying to help you with your photography.
