  #99 Ugly
Entry 13 of 14
   
 
Reminder of America's Past Ugliness       ©2011 mrsawyer
Panasonic DMC-FZ50       13th place, 22 points
1/400s, f6.3, ISO 100, 71mm, Shutter Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Sharpened, corrected camera distortion, cropped       Extra Info: Though not ugly to look at per se, the Confederate flag reminds me of America's ugliest war, the Civil War. Inherent in the ugliness was also the attempt of the Confederacy to maintain a system of human slavery, a most ugly institution. (I thought the physical position these flags quite significant.)

    I agree with your definition. Well shot and composed.

    Sorry, for me there is too much beautiful and good meaning behind a countries flag to call it ugly.

    I commend you for this attempt. The photo as a photo is just fine, but the idea did not come across without the words. But this sort of shot with emotional impact is what good photography is about so I rate the attempt to go beyond the merely decorative highly.

    Also shows one mans ideas is anothers dream. Like the picture which captures the end. Whether it was a result is open to question.

    Fairly well executed shot though remarkable "stock" in appearance. I like the concept and certainly I thought of trying for a capture with this kind of symbolic or representative ugliness but it is hard to find in the pure stark form you have here. Wish you gave a little more info. on what that flag is doing flying here and the significance you see in the two being together as they are here.
