perfect theme, and well captured. Nice detailed front comes in contrast with the blurred background. But the tilt of your camera is what makes your photo special.

Very good Mark. So well composed (including the tilt). That flying Star-Spangled Banner works so well tightening the compo and keeping the attention on the father and daughter. Great b&w.

St Patrick's day seems to be one heck of a party in this place!!! The whole photo pus the emphasis on this smiling man, it well constructed. I like the rather darh B1W too.
This with the flags, the parade etc... gives some sort of heroic touch to the photo.

That's a great B&W picture. Almost an american symbol by itself. It's just a little on the dark side for me.

You captured the mood of the parade very well here, Mark. The dynamically angled flags, the mix of everyday family life with solemn patriotism, the old and worn part of town livened up by the activity. It's all there and it's a very vivid shot. Regards, Ken.
