Default Need Advice

I have the Nikon P90, which I am pretty happy with most of the time. I am looking at other point and shoot digital cameras with a zoom like the Nikon, that might have higher quality photos, etc. I dont really want a SLR, cause I dont feel like I would have time to put new lenses on, etc with a 2 yr old running around. Any advice for a beginner.
Thx!

Can you post some examples of images you've captuerd that you're dissatisfied with?

#1 was taken this past weekend, full zoom (use to shoot better than this)
#2 of a shinto shrine

More info: I was taken photos of some koi fish a week ago and all of a sudden I noticed looking through the eye hole and looking at the screen that it was blurry on every setting (not taking a picture) I tried to turn the camera off and it said lens error, the lens retracted all the way back in like it was off and it wasnt. It finally let me turn it off, back on and was acting normal after that. Since this has happened, it seems like the quality photos are not as good as what I was getting before this happened. Enough of complaining here are the pictures.

Yuki0-

In the first sample you were fighting atmospheric haze it appears. In those circumstance the result would be the same with any super zoom camera.

Sample #2 is a clear case of over exposure. If you see over exposure on your LCD screen, retake the photo after first dialing in some minus Exposure Compensation.
