    Covered the photography for an event put on by the Saddleback College Veteran's club. They put out 600 flags, each one representing 9 soldiers that have lost their lives in OEF/OIF.

    Nice, crisp shots.

    I want to see peoples reaction to this though.

    A professor once told me if it's not moving...it's probably a still life.
    hahaha

    Suggestion: For photo no.1 try putting a child holding a flag in front of the sign but not facing the camera. The child should face the sign as if reading it. Then there's the story for your photo. The color was great and also the framing of the photo.

    #3 is my favorite, with #2 close behind, but I would have tried to get lower on the second shot, otherwise :thumbup:
