This look like a harley brochure; so vibrant, so nice.
oh yeah, and the South lost you know. I would hop that a silly little tattoo wouldn't be a means to keep hate and intolerance alive.

This is a beautifully done shot... colors, tones, focus.. all wonderful... not sure how it meets the challenge of one of the 7 deadly sins... Pride is excessive belief in one's own abilities, that interferes with the individual's recognition of the grace of God. It has been called the sin from which all others arise. Pride is also known as Vanity.. if this shot was demonstrating courage, honor and so on I would give it a 9 - none the less, this photo created a very long dialogue between myself and my partner about it's meaning.. fantastic job!

I think in this instance, pride is a good thing, but as far as the technical aspects go, good job. 7

One of the few real emotional shots in the challenge. 10 Thank you for sharing and for striking the strings of patriotism. Is that a 9-11 shirt? Good work.

pride is great, I would be proud to be an American, but pride in ones country is not sinful pride. 6

Seems a little more confused than proud, with the Stars and Bars right beside the Star Spangled Banner....
