Very nice. I like patriotic stuff. The reflection of west is the coolest part. It looks good on my desktop as well.

Great! I agree with theryalestella, the reflection is cool. the only thing is the colors don't really match.... or maybe I've just gotten too picky. :)

Awesome. The only thing I wish was different is how you can see in the building a little. I would love it (even more) if the reflection of the outside and "West" sign were all that was visible in the glass. Still a fabulous shot, and my current desktop. Thanks for the submission.

The Red, White & Blue flapping in the sky...is there anything more uplifting as that? I think not! And I agree, the reflection adds a very nice touch; in addition to the clouds. Which in its own way does make a powerful point, given the challenges we face as a nation today. In short, this photo truly his home and speaks in a thousand words. Well done!!!!

Brilliant picture. This picture really makes the patriot in me feel proud to be an American. Looks great as my wallpaper. :)

Sorry, but I don't understand the excitement about this picture, except the emphasised patriottic taste. Don't get offended, it's just a personal feeling about it.

as an image its impressive however it is a little hard to admire it fully knowing that the strength it portraits is as hollow as 0% interest rates.

@ s1ipp3ry: I think that the way you view the coutry is from a pessimistic point of view. What is going on in our country now should not affect the way you admire a photo of a flag. Sad really.

What's sad is knee jerk worship. True patriotism runs a hell of a lot deeper than automatic praise of a symbol. A flag is, after all, a representation of something greater that must be fought to retain (and not only militarily). Very nice shot, though, Daniel.

Brizkit, enjoy spinning my words however you like. :)

Point proven. I'll bet you've never travelled outside your state, let alone your country, to understand what this nation really means. That you seem to want to block dissent really bolsters what I'm saying. A real patriot is one who can see where he stands, accept his faults, and THEN love his country (and wish it better) -- not one who blindly praises his birthplace. It would stun you how incredibly deep my respect for this country runs, despite my not falling to my knees at the sight of our flag. The irony is you'd probably call me anti-American, which is a mockery of the truth. Open your eyes a little.

Funny how we see things slightly differentially due to the origins we come from, when I see the American flag I still see greatness but in a whole new way Americans have a right to be proud great country and great flag ... inspirational in fact.

Like I said, spin my my words however you want, I never said that you should praise symbols or any of that shit. When you see a flag, you should think of what it means, what is behind it. By using the word "flag" I didn't mean just the emptiness of cloth and thread, I meant what it represents, what it stands for, who the citizens are. You can make all the assumptions you want about me, it doesn't mean they are true. Maybe you are the one who needs to open their eyes, as you are so quick to judge.

For such a serene photo, it's too bad it turned into such a hostile discussion. I'm glad that some of you were able to enjoy the photo simply for art's sake. I find tons of great wallpaper for my own desktop and I was humbled to be able to contribute back to this beautiful community.

"And where we are met with cynicism and doubt and fear and those who tell us that we can't, we will respond with that timeless creed that sums up the spirit of the American people in three simple words -- yes, we can."

Few here are understanding Brizkit. Let me ask you all something. You agree that to excel in anything (music, sports, etc), you must identify your weaknesses so you can improve, right? Well, this is how I interpret Brizkit's views on our country. By ignoring our faults and being blithely optimistic, we are actually hurting ourselves. A real patriot is one who honestly wishes us well by highlighting our problems and showing us how we can do better. When you gloss over your nation's flaws and cheerlead it with your eyes shut, your "patriotism" is no more authentic than someone's love for a sports team. Think about it. (Debate aside, this is a very good photo. Love the reflections.)

It is a good submission maybe good art it meant to spark some controversy sometimes.

it's a shame people think it's a shame to openly discuss the main zeitgeist of our times. fear debate, fear questions, fear anything that isn't optimistic regarding your and your countries future. a stagnant social atmosphere that bludgeons differentiating views from the status quo. who's to command what emotions or thoughts come to mind from any picture? speak what you feel, damn the PC BS. time for some openning of minds and some tough love. at least thats what i feel when i see this pic.

Great Shot. I agree with Daniel. It IS a shame that this turned into a fight. Nice Photo, hope to see more.

I don't see why just the image of an American flag stirs up so much hate from some people. When I look at this I see a symbol of freedom and democracy and a beacon of hope. Too many people see something else for various silly reasons.

I'm going to use this simply by virtue of it being so hated.

Sorry for the multiple posts, my browser is acting up.

Also to continue from what I was saying, as an American, when I look at my country I see a lot of things. I think the problem I have isn't based on me "glossing" over our faults. Any real patriot can understand the USA is not perfect. But when you constantly hate on it, and don't offer any solutions, and then attack others for their love of their country, whatever country that may be, it seems highly ignorant to me.

(Can someone delete my multiple posts?)
