Canon G11

First off let me say I have no aspirations of being a "pro" nor do I need a DLSR. I did want something a little higher end with more adjustably than most point and shoots. So I picked up a G11 a couple of weeks ago and I'm loving it so far. Here are some of the shots I've taken. I'm can't wait to actually learn what it can do.
*Edit I've cropped both of the images per Lonely Ravens suggestion"

Well, right off I can see you have a good eye for photography. With that, it doesn't matter what camera you use!

That said, watch your cropping. Give equal space between the wheels and the edge of the frame. Notice on both you have the spacing a little off. Little details like that will turn a good photo into a GREAT photo. And yours sure are good!

Cool thanks for the tip and the pat on the back. I appreciate it!

Yeah you cropped those photos a little to close, they need a little bit room to breath, but that first one has a nice angle.
I heard that G11 is a very nice camera.
