A couple things. First, I don't think these little thumbnails do justice to the actual product. I'm sure they look quite good printed full size and on the wall, instead of as a little 2 by 4 inch picture on your screen. Second, these people who claim they could take a better photo themselves are obviously not photographers. Sorry, but you can't take a photo anything like that with your crappy little automatic pocket camera with the image sensor the size of a shirt button. It doesn't have anywhere near enough resolution to produce this kind of image printed in such a large size. Never mind the fact that you could never make a print like this, unless you are a professional printer and own machines that cost tens of thousands of dollars. People like the above whiners are the bane of photography. They have this stupid notion that they could take a photo just as good. No, you can't. And you can't print it either.
