in Germany we have a kind of ambivalent relationship to our flag and colors, for good reasons. Before the championship 2006 you didn´t see the flag very often, only on occasions which had to do with the government, and never never private cars were decorated with the german colors, perhaps only by narrow-minded nationalists. Then, 2006, "party-patriotism" was invented, and black-red-gold has become the usual outfit for football-fans. I have still my problems with it, I have still to get used to the sight of an ocean of shawls, hats, drums and flags.

the german football fans are happy of their country team during the World cup and show their joy in the streets of the city.
Nice panning which enhances the speed of the car.

A festive scene well captured despite the difficulty of the vehicle in motion. Well done!
Have a nice week-end.

Very good panning on the fg and good use of motion blur on the bg. Not easy to do. And there is nothing wrong with the German flag! Germans love their country and their teams as much as anyone else. Good fg sharpness on the vehicle and people too. Excellent saturation and framing. Tfs!

ein klasse Bild mit einer tollen Stimmung. Ich gebe zu, dass die martialischen Farben der deutschen Flagge auch mir Unbehagen bereitet, aber da tröstet der Kommentar von Chris ein wenig.
