I thought a negative (reverse image) of the flag would be cool. It wasn't. I liked the way the flag came out. I did some dodging and burning and noise ninja-ing.

hoping for some faves but I'm pretty darn sure this won't go over well =X

did you use some NR on the image? I'm having trouble seeing the face but I like it anyway.

Made me think of candy ribbons. This is a really neat perspective - the title now has me seeing a demented laughing clown in those shapes. I want my candy ribbons back! ;)

When I very first saw this I thought that it was a lady's head on the side with a fancy hat on. I like it. Pictures of American flags are common, but this is different because of the interesting shapes made by the flag. I also really like the colors. Great job. I gave it 9 in the challenge.

I thought this was an interesting catch. Also thought this could be interpreted in quite a few ways. Kind of eerie that the face presented itself to you like this.

I love the striking colors. The composition is very nice and I see the "face". Seems I've seen that face somewhere before.... Anyway, very nice. Congrats.

Unusual perspective, which I rather like. The longer I look at it the more I like it.

on my moniture there appears to be a lot of dodging and burning which is very apparent from the grey whites,

I do like the curves of your flag and the angle, nicely done

I like the odd perspective.

Love the textures of the flag. Halo of lighter blue sky is a little distracting.
