Pictures that include the American Flag always seem to get a lot of ones and twos because of our International Audience and Anti-Americanism, its a shame, because as a former Boy Scout, I love this photo, its very well done - I gave you a seven, here is a shot of mine, done quite some time ago for the center challenge that got hit bad because of the American flag....

Nice idea, and the composition is good, but the colors look a bit off to me. Looks like the white balance is too yellow. An 8 from me.

well composed. I like the angle of the flag in the background and the shallow depth of field. color cast is a little off though - I'd like to see the white flag stripes look brighter

The white balance is off, this is easily corrected in PS using Curves and clicking the white eye dropper on the white stripe.

It is a great shot! The white balance, or highlights seem to really be off! I LOVE the message, and idea. 8
