As the others have mentioned, its all about the lens quality. Most Entry Level consummer DSLRS shoots in rougly the same quality no matter the brand.
Canons t3i is a good offer, but if the t2i is still available near you it's worth having a handle of it as it has the same sensor.
This is probably going to be a bit cheaper than the t3i to allow more money into accessories, before you upgrade from the kit lens ( its a great starter lens ) there are a couple of things that will make your life easier.
First is a good solid tripod, this will be essential for long shutter speed photography such as early mornings / late evening and blurring waterfalls.
Also a good protective camera bag is a good idea! makes it easier to carry the camera to the location, just make sure you get one with room for any extra lenses you may want to buy in the future.
After you start to get the hang of things you may want to upgrade to a dedicated wide angle, or an upgraded standard zoom.
