At the moment I have a Nikon P100 but I am not that impressed with the image quality.

I want to get further into photography as I have been shortlisted for a few competitions. But do I go for the G11 or the 450D? On ebay the G11 is 285 and the 450D 349.

I have always had a point and shoot and never owned a dslr. I like taking wildlife and seascapes.

Confused and pondering???

Any advice please
