When I found out I was going to be odd this month, I knew I would be doing something special for the 11th. I spent all day photographing what I felt evoked patriotic emotions in me. Once I settled on this photo, I knew I needed to edit it. I used Gimp to give the image a more nostalgic feel with the Sepia tone. I really wanted it to feel as though I was reminiscing over the past 7 years. I then pulled the colors through of just the flag. I felt that the flag really symbolized our nation. It wasn't blowing brilliantly in the wind. It was hanging there. Saying we've been through a lot, but we're still here. In this version, I saturated the colors to make the red and blue really stand out. I wanted them to scream We may be hurt, but we're still here! I don't know if this detracts from the more nostalgic feel, however. That is why I also included an unsaturated version which I like just as much. I'd love to hear which you all prefer. Thanks :o)
