I was shooting various views of Bowles Hall on the UC Berkeley campus when I noticed they were flying the Jolly Roger. This was the only frame I could get with the flag outstretched on a rare windless day...

The rest of the building sink? I think you shoulda shown it.

nice shot. I like the subject, but showing more of the castle in the frame might have worked out better.

Interesting texture contrast. Could use more DOF. JEM

Beautiful sky! I like the colors of the building against it.

LOL. Title is funny. Too bad you had to explain the it in itself, but funny nonetheless. The shot is well composed, though I would like it to be pulled back just a bit to allow for more of that triangle shape on the left. Wish that blasted bush would move out of the way too, but not recommending that you chop it down or anything. :-) 6, just-married

The architecture/shapes sell this image to me. I'm glad the flag is not in the center of the frame. 6 sjgleah
