Just a couple of questions: 1. whats the first reaction you get when you look at the photo 2. personally, would you prefer the flowers to be in more focus or do you think it adds to photo? When I first saw this shot, I said damn, the bloody flower is out of focus! However the more i looked at it the more i liked it. I took this shot when I was living in south florida, this was about 1 or 2 weeks after Sept. 11. The little flag is was probably attached to some car but that wind tore off as I had found it near the side of the road. It was taken with a yaschica mat camera, I hardly knew how to take photos with the bugger! Thank god there were step by step instructions on the internet. Please honestly comment, your likes/dislikes and where it has room for improvement- i really want know as I think this has become my favourite shot.
