Not the greatest photo - but I wanted to share - Actually taken with my camera phone on my BlackBerry on Sept 17th on my way back from volunteering with disabled veterans - helping them learn how to surf.
3000 Flags in honor of 9/11 were put up on the lawn of Peperdine University and I drove by wishing I had my real camera. When I went back on Sunday with my real camera all the flags were gone. :-(

Thanks to all who voted and the noise was kinda rushed for me. I realy like the photo in color. Which I will post soon. Kinda tired right now. But I need to learn how to use PS better to get the pic right!

Did you actually add this noise in post? It doesn't look like actual sensor noise.

Loving the grain -- without it the picture would be more mediocre. If it were me though, I probably would have increased the contrast, too (though I'm not sure what the editing rules were in this challenge...).

Nice depth in this shot, the sky is quite noisy though.

Interesting POV. Perhaps the ISO could be set lower to reduce some of the grain. Effective interpretation of the challenge.

The noise and lack of quality really detracts from the impact of the picture
