Enough with the pro-USA photos/comments already! There ARE people from all over the world competing in this challenge, and these kind of vocal sentiments are really tiring. *yawn*

Nice. Too bad there were more clouds or context.

you should have "flipped" the picture

Isn't it backwards? It's very difficult for many of us to vote clearly on such an emotive image, especially with that title. I think you've chosen an odd stillness of flag though - kind of half a ripple.

Got ta' salute it. Nice shot. Is it not supposed to be all the way up the pole?

What better colors... a slightly bluer, less cloudy sky? Good capture, though. I like the feel...the direction seems backwards...weird. 8

The flagpole is leaning a little to the left, I would have tried rotating the canvas to the right. The colors are good, you can't go wrong with flags right?

You might want to consider flipping this vertically so that it is left to right and not leave so much sky above the flag.

Very nice image. The wind blowing the flag adds a nice sense of texture to the image. I also like the way the sky has some value and range of color in it as well. Good job.

I little too partiotic, especitally the title. I'm more of a loyalist myself. The shadow is hiding some of the stars. Why is the flag not all the way to the top?

If you push the saturation this image could be a little nicer on the eyes.

Nice colors, but a few details for flag shots: 1) flag shoould be fully run to the top, 2) in a photo, the field (stars), should be viewed on the left.

better framing would make this common sight more interesting

Very good flag shot. Too bad the flag pole is not that interesting.

I thought political expression is "off topic"!

My favorite colors!! If your camera has it, try shooting in continuous mode to get the best shot.
