Next, I found this house with an American flag flying on its porch. It was illuminated by two lights, and I wanted to make it the subject of the image. I carefully positioned myself such that the pole didn't block the flag, and I could capture the reflection of the flag on the front door. The next challenge was finding the balance in light between the bright flag and dark sky. I made the priority the flag, since it is the subject, but made the overall composition slightly above the brightness I typically shoot at to compensate for the sky.
