Three Flags, Montreal QC

The American flag flies proudly at the entrance of Place du Canada, along with the other two sovereign national flags. Six flags may have flown over Texas, but three flags fly over Montreal at the same time.

I take landscape photos that seem to me revealing of something or other.
Often I try to make them look sort of like oil paintings or watercolors.
So far the only tool I have used besides a camera is iPhoto.
So far I have avoided any retouching or other spot effects.
I often turn "noise reduction" way up to deliberately remove small details.
So far they are all taken in North America.
They usually come out sort of hyperrealistic, but sometimes impressionistic.
Sometimes they come out lousy, but I won't post those.
