Fantastic work! It's the best shot of a flag I've ever seen. Great timing and the bit of flare is a nice addition.

Lots of people do lots of flag shots, especially today. But THIS one captures something others don't . . I'm not sure if it's the sun glinting thru the flag right at the stars, but it gives me a *sparkley* sensation =]

Nice one.
