Very beautiful scene here. Glad to see other countries associating their flags with 'freedom'! Personally I think I would have cropped out the sidewalk. IMHO there is too much of the front wall. Oh and I don't know if this is an American asthetics thing but I probably would have flipped the shot so the flag was flying to the right instead of flying to the left...to ME it looks backwards. Overall 7

Intersting shot. I like how this shot has many layers. The wall, landscape, hills, and the sky. The bold colors of the flag brings it great attention. The wall also leads your eyes from the left side of the picture toward the right where the flag is. Great composition.

This is a nice composition. The overall photo is a little dark and the colors could be brought out a little.

Booo.....no just kidding, I'm not vindictive and I do think that this one is very clearly saying that every one has a voice, no matter how unpopular or vice versa. it's a good message in this contest, though I find it difficult to except in this case. Still nice colors and setting. Very important message.

Well it makes a camge from an Ameriacan flag, just a little too much wall would have liked to have seen a little more of the background.

Yes indeed! We are fortunate to live in countries that allow that. Nice lines here too...angles, texture, colour. Good job! :-)

Hurrah! A Union Jack! I looked for one of these everywhere...
Shame that the composition doesn't work so well for me here. 5

I'm really not sentimental but... we could be German territory now if weren't for those who fought and died in WWII. I find myself feeling very grateful quite often. I love the stark flag against such a rural backdrop. I really do think that our flag is the smartest in the world!

I would have prefered less wall and more flag but I like the composition.
