The second photo is excellent although some might argue that the subject is too centered in the frame. As for the first photo, I always thought that dogs shot at there own level were better then dogs shot from above. Anyway, you seem to have a good eye and once you get done learning all the controls on a DSLR I think you will do some outstanding work

Congratulations on some nice work! You do have a good eye, and that is the most important thing in photography - the cameras may give you more flexibility for different shots, but the eye and the taker is more important than the equipment. You mentioned youa re a pixel junkie... you will find many forums here and elsewhere that talk about "more pixels isn't always better"... I am new to this arena also, but I have done a ton of research - and you will find both the Canons and the Nikons get great respect in the field. Choose one you feel comfortable with, and use it as much as you can! I chose Canon and I am glad I did. The 40D would be a good choice - you might want to check it out. You can usually find a rental place where you can try different cameras to see which you like best. Good luck as you dive into photography!
