My Rebel sucks. I suck. Should I upgrade?

The photos from my Canon S90 are way better than those from my Rebel XTi. Should I get a new body? Or maybe I just need to improve my skills?

In a recent trip to Iceland I used the Rebel with a Canon 70-200mm f/4L IS or a Canon 17-55 f/2.8 IS attached to the camera. In several spots, I also used the S90. When comparing them, the S90 shots are better exposed and seems to have a wider range of tones. Is my Rebel malfunctioning? I have tried Auto, P, M, and I just cannot get good shots when compared to the S90 in low light situations (like cloudy, outdoors).  Did I accidentally press a ``make crummy photos'' menu item?

I'm also disappointed on how the Rebel performs in low light when compared to the S90.

Should I get a new camera?
