I'm a big 'flag' fan and I like this shot a lot. Perspective is great, and the shape of the flag is excellent. How many shots did you take to get this great composition? I've shot 20-30 shots of flags in the past and wound up not liking any of them. I like the way you can see both the front and the back of the flag due to the way it is waving. The only thing I can think of to make this shot better would be to bring out the white of the stars in the flag. Spot editing rules don't allow it, but it would be fun to see this photo doctored up a bit in Photoshop. Over all, an excellent copmosition, great perspective... Good job!

Regardless of how angry I am about world politics at the moment, this is a VERY good photo and right on topic. I can't possibly let anti-war bias get in the way.

Nice high angle shot. Challenge well met. Color - well the flag seems very nice, too bad you can't control the weather (love a blue sky with this one, no score effect) Focus is nicely sharp. Framing - I can see why you chopped the flag, but cropping it partly still doesn't seem like a "good" thing (ala Martha Stewart).
Overall, a very nice effort, easily an 8. Swash

How many of you went together to do the photography for this challenge. This looks like the same pole in each one of them. Or is it that patriotism is just on our minds more right now. Of course I like this. What I especially like is how it looks like a black and white with only the flag in color. This is awesome.

Nice clear focus on the flag. Good shot.

Being Canadian I would of liked it better if it was a Canadian Falg. Kidding :). The only little thing that I don't like about this photo is the sky. I would have prefered blue. BUT! it's at half mast I presume because of the terrible Columbia crash. So the grey suits this photo. What I really love about it is the composition. WOW the flag looks like it's waving forever. Great job. To my American cousin I will have to give you a 10.

Quite beautiful. I love the way the flag actually leads out of the frame. Compositionally it gives you a full triangle which it nice to look at. Great work. (9)
