Not too sure this fits the challenge. The composition is a bit odd, and IMO this is a shot of 'other people's art'...nothing too interesting about it :( sorry

I really can't find any way to judge this photo with respect to the challenge, but maybe that's a cultural thing? I also don't really like photos that are of something 2 dimensional from a perpendicular camera angle. This seems to break the rule on photographing a work of art in its entirety, although I'm sure it would be DQ'ed by now if others agreed with me.

The composition is striking and thel ighting is good, but that's about all I can say.

Very strong image. Color seems very good. I'm not totally certain about how this relates to this challenge, but I'll not argue too much (I've been looking at so many high angle shots, this seems like a refreshing change). I don't understand your title, but that's nothing to do with your score either. (If you care to PM me, I'd be fine with that!) 8 Swash

This is plain, simple, and absolutely beautiful. I can't say enough good about this one. I really like that there is only one star showing, and I know that wasn't easy to do. Beautiful cropping job. The focus is fantastic and the colors are so true and natural. This is number 1 in my book.

Lighting on this image is a bit bright causing the star to appear out of focus. Nice idea, but does not shout "perspective" at me.

Well, I'm a sucker for patriotism.

one time i read a comment about a flag photo somebody else had written. commenter said it was a cheap shot, too easy, so ubiquitous a symbol that it loses its meaning.
i think he was wrong. i like your perspective.
some folks are real sensitive about seeing unorthodox star-spangled banners. they're entitled to their beliefs, which i think you should ignore. in my humble opinion, jimi hendrix was the best thing that ever happened to the national anthem. i dig your flag.
this country's flag has artistic license built-in.
