Jay, If we took JC's advice, and placed you on that hill in a quarry, this would be the difference!  Sorry, I am very bad at Photoshop!

JC, when can you teach me CS3?

It's not a very user friendly program but SO worth getting the hang of, it's the best and the industry standard.  Once you get to grips with the "layers" thing the sky is the limit.

Jerrycan - since you so correctly analised my pics as taken by a FUJI... camera... I have been thinking... if a group of us ends up travelling to the UK... I want to make sure that moments are captured 1st time and that the pics we take are the best possible quality we can capture...

So the old question - which camera.... yep there's a post, but I assumed this one's linked to you for "personal" service  ;D

Please could you advise... in your opinion which would suffice (apart from the expensive Nikons' I suppose)

Goose, unless you plan to extensively Photoshop all your pics, Fuji's in-camera image processing is the best.  They seem to have saturation, contrast, sharpness everything in nice balance for straight printing, their colours are very close to true without need of extra manipulation.  The S9100 Finepix would be a nice upgrade from your S602, it has a phenomenal zoom range for a non-slr camera and more than enough pixels.

Upgrade already done.... I now have the 9500z an infinitely better unit!

Thanks a stack for the advice...  ;D

Enjoy your Fuji.  BTW, it's not a feat to tell what digi cam a pic was taken with, it's one of many cons of digital, the cam embeds a LOT of data in every pic, called the EXIF data.  This comes in very handy when analysing "what went wrong" amongst other things 'cause it tells you what f-stop, shutter speed, time of day was when the pic was taken.
