@Lylou & Roland: Thank you! I say why not everyone celebrate, we can all celebrate the birthdays of each country :)
Now that's a Canadian image. And how about when k.d. lang sings that song on her album Hymns of the 49th Parallel? It's the best. Love how you framed the flag in a red building.

@Jane: Thanks so much Jane.
Wonderful tones and I love the processing on this one! Very nice work!

That smoothy red and white framed that way are really soft - never visited your country (yet) but I hope I'll do that one day (and especially Vancouver island). Nice tribute*
1 Jul 2009 6:13am
@k@: Thank you K. If you do get over this way, make sure to stop in Vancouver too :)
Happy Canada Day to you Sharon - and good to see a quote from one of my all time favourite songs.

@dobbino: Thanks Rob! Leonard Cohen is a favourite of mine as well. Cheers!
It seem like you had little light for this shot. It's almost a night shot. Good job!

@xavier cardell: Thank you...yes, it was a day of low lighting.
I have never been there, but love it all the same. I love the smoothness and softness of this one. Perhaps it reflects the sweet feelings you have for your country.

Very happy day to all Canadians! Touching when someone feels proud of her country as you do.

I like the colors and the flou effect

I really do adore the expression in this picture. I love the flag.
5 Jul 2009 2:54am
Beautiful photo, the colors are special.
5 Jul 2009 11:41am
I really like the soft focus in this image and lack of contrast. Very well done. This effect makes this image looking an artistic statement.
5 Jul 2009 3:07pm
My imagination is getting the better of me, I picture this a hotel window like the Chelsea in New York and Leonard Cohen has put up the flag for Canada Day. But I really can't seem to see him doing such an act of tribalism. :D
5 Jul 2009 11:43pm
Joli, joli... le pavoisement!
