I was going for the obvious and what I felt was perhaps more difficult definition depicting the space between the lens and the outer edge of our atmosphere with leading lines and focal points between ranging from the base of the flagpole up through the flags, the clouds and ultimately the blue background of deep space. The waving flags depicting the movement of air.

All comments greatly appreciated.

*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

First impressions are of a good shot that meets the challenge well and appears to have been appreciated with a reasonable score from the voters

I like your viewpoint taking this flags pole structure to provide interest and lead you into the lovely sky background. You have chosen well to photograph it on such a day where the clouds add interest, it looks like you may have used a polariser filter? There are certainly nice contrasts between the clouds and the rich blue of the sky.

Having the main pole come in from the bottom right hand corner creates a strong diagonal which in itself makes the image stronger and more dynamic. Where I think you missed a good opportunity was to use a much slower shutter speed to create even more dynamic feel with the blurring of the flags in the wind. Given your exif you may well have needed a neutral density filter to slow things down, this would have also helped you to meet the challenge brief even better giving a real feeling of the air driving through the image and also your objective 'The waving flags depicting the movement of air.'

The sky's the limit… Sid
