    Cool contrast. The reds and whites are so vivid against the background. I am curious though, what would the image look like if you reversed it, putting the flag in its "appropriate" orientation?

    Reminds me of the camera setup on The Matrix. LOL

    Excellent. Perspective is perfect. I could see the potential of selling a lot of these pictures. Make me feel like a patroit and I am not even American.

    Hey, now those are many stars and many stripes, too!

    I like the contrasts of the blues: the dark one of the flags and the cyan blue of the sky. The cyan makes me wonder if the clouds weren't any whiter? Maybe?

    So you stand there in line, look around, and see motifs such as this one? Frame it like this and dang! ready is the perfect photo? I want to have your eyes... (Well, no, not really, I am fairly happy with my own, actually).
