    I am relatively new here and am just getting my feet wet. I was wondering if you could look at my photo and let me know what you think. I have entered this one in a few amature contests and it has not done well at all. I have entered a number of other shots as well that have done very well (between first and sixth place out of hundreds quite a few times). The contests are all amature stuff and the voting is done by members of the website (can I post websites here?). I just kind of feel that this photo should have done better than it did. I would love to hear what you all think though. Thanks!

    i like the tones and your DOF is dead on. the fold in the flag was just right. the barn in the background works well for this patriotic image :)

    the metal plate or something at the bottom is a little distracting.

    Thanks Jon. That metal plate is actually a mailbox that the flag was attached to. Yeah I agree that is a downfall of this photo. Thanks for looking at it for me!
