    This was just a snapshot, but I think it turned out alright. How does it look? Should I do anything to it in Photoshop?

    Thanks.

    It's not that I don't like it, it just seems like a snapshot to me.
    Flag hanging, no context, no drama, no tension in the shot.
    The flag is a powerful symbol and yet it is just treated as any object in the camera view so it loses all the power it has as a symbol.

    Well gotta Ditto traveler here on his comments with this one... what I really don't like is the appearance of the flag.. Really disturbingly filthy ?? Whats up with that?? also I think what you wanted to do was use place the flag in an all blue background of sky?? and sky looks a little un natural in color??

    I think I would re think this one , find a better looking flag , and attack this again..
