By the way, I like what you did with picture. How much contrast and sharpening did you add. I have PS Elements 6.
I don't do much post processing either, but I think all digital images benefit from a little PP. I think I adjusted the levels a little and added minimum sharpening in Photoshop.
I don't know how much a new camera would benefit you, but you can look at some comparisons shot with different cameras in this link and it may help you decide:http://www.imaging-resource.com/IMCOMP/COMPS01.HTM
Edited to add: Dana, I couldn't remember the exact settings i used in PS, but using "auto-levels" and unsharp mask settings of amount 100, radius 1 and threshold 10 produced a very similar image.
