'Cow in a Field' and 'Little Pip'

'Cow in a Field'
'Little Pip'

Taken on an iPhone 4g and printed to 12"x12" on photographic paper and it looks printed good.  I have even printed one on an A1 poster and if you stand at lead 3m away it is fine.  Amazing what you can use - if the iPhone is all you have to the take the picture then you to use it.
