    Love the image. it says so much. I hae a sister in the military and she has been over ther 3 times. Love the brightness of the flag compared to all the other coloring in the pic.

    Thanks, Aubrey! I can’t decide, though… would it have looked better if I had put the flag straight across vice crooked? I’m kinda new to still life photography, so feel free to make suggestions! By the way, thank your sister for me! God bless her.

    Many thanks! My 10 year old daughter did the shot with some help from me on the composition. I’ll pass your comment on to her.

    Thanks, Boretti! Coming from you that is quite a compliment – I’ve been impressed with your work. I’ll pass your comment on to my daughter – she sweated on this one (over 100 degrees, full sun that day!). Thanks!

    It may be a little cheesy of me, but this brings tears to my eyes. It is truely touching and slightly personal for me. My father is a Vietnam vet. Though he is not a part of this war, it still brings back memories for him. Thank you for sharing this beautiful photo with us.

    Wow! Thanks for writing such a wonderful comment! Its very personal to us too since I am in the Army. Please thank your father for his service in Vietnam. He never enjoyed the civilian support like our troops generally do now – I can only imagine what he went through. He has my respect.
