Report- Earth to Sun

Hi my commandant,

I am caporal Dan de Lion (registration number : 06092008), your Chief Operator.

I must to say you that
your Sun’s Army is completing its mission!

The operation is a great success.
Thousand of small suns are growing on the Earth!

We have resisted at all weapons, killer plants and garden tools.
Our roots are firmly based on the ground and they will resist at any bad weathers. Many of other small yellow soldiers like us are waiting in shade, for the changing of the guard.

We are the last unity in action on the ground.
Elsewhere, in Europe and Southern America, the mission is ended. The silver parachuting operation is finished. Thanks to strong winds, the seeds are planted.

We are proud to be such active soldiers of your Army!
Soon, YOU will shine as much on the Earth as in Sky!


This photo was taken close to the plastic cover of a greenhouse.
Technically, I converted the original from RAW in JPEG, adjusted curves and as usual, resized and framed.

Thank you for viewing and commenting!
Have a Sunny week!

Hi Annie, really nice composition split diagonally, i could'nt figure out what it was on the left until i read the note. nice colors and dof


Hello Annie,

Never have I seen such appealing looking dandelions.
The bright yellow colour with the sun on the flowers is just fab! Nevermind that they are a nuisance.
The effect of the reflection on the plastic is remarkable. Well done! Joni

hello Annie,
Ilikw this very much. Excellent composition, creative PP work and the colours and light are great.

What an amazing shot. Terrific diagonal element through the frame, beautiful DOF and saturation. That foggy effect from the plastic cover is brilliant.
Well done - cute note, too!

Hi Annie,
Hahahaaha great note! Also a great picture. Superb DOF. The misty part is a nice contrast to the whole imae.
Superb colourful imae, excellent presented in the white frame.

Nice backdrop the cover has provided Annie. A good diagonal composition, lovely colours and good light. Some OE on the foreground flowers but not unbearable. TFS,

The plastic sheet makes the image surreal.
The diagonal element makes the dandylions a nice image. Nicest photo of dandylions that I've ever seen. Funny sense of humour in your note too. TFS. K2

Hi Anne,
These little monsters are sure beautiful! Now that the City of Toronto has banned the use of pesticides in our gardens, these will soon over run most of our gardens.

Bonjour, Annie,
Jolie vue de ces dents-de-lions. J'aime beaucoup l'angle de la prise.
Les paroles sont aussi belles.
Merci pour le partage.
Bonne semaine.

hello Annie

rich yellow captured here
it seems that some wind is blowing and all the flowers have bent towards the right.
good perspective

Bonjour Annie,
Quelle belle composition ! La lumière créant des zones claires et sombres, les détails et la profondeur de champs limitée donnent un très bel ensemble. Présentation efficace également, bravo !

HAHA! Marvelous posting Annie! Very humorous and I just LOVE the surreal image, reflection to the left! It leads you back into the shot and then grabs you and holds you there! Really excellent work here!

Bonjour Annie,
Je me suis rendue compte recemment que les pissenlits pouvaient pulluler dans les champs au point de les envahir totalement ... Et j'ai trouvé ça magnifique ! Leur jaune est lumineux et c'est bon pour le moral ! Ta photo illustre bien ces deux sensations !
Et ta note est pleine d'humour ! Mes compliments.
Bonne journée.

Hello Annie,
It is a wonderful invasion; it is the 5th column of the army of Spring. Fantastic compo. I love the elegant curve to the right up and the progressive diffusion. Excelent colour and light too. A superb work. Congrats, mb

Terrific story, Annie... I almost believed it ☺^☺.
The light in this shot is terrific too. Bright on the right, but well controlled, dimmer behind the plastic foil, which also enhanced the feeling of a shallow DoF (shallower than the one in the bright light), but of course that's just an impression.
Another beauty.

Hi Annie

An excellent composition with very good lead in of the sharpness fading into the background and to the left of the photo.

I really enjoyed your "report" too. Well done!

I was surprised with the wonderful story to match this great image, Annie. How imaginative and fun. The image itself is awesome with the reflections of the invaders on the plastic. It gives it a really mystic feeling. The light is awesome and once again, I loved the , almost true, story. Bravo Mon Ami.
Amitiés sincères

Bonjour Annie,
De ces fleurs, que beaucoup n'apprécient pas, car trop envahissantes dans nos jardins, tu en as fait un chef d'oeuvre très bucolique avec de beaux jeux de lumières, un côté ensoleillé tré lumineux, l'autre dans une légère brume, crént ainsi un côté flou artistique, Bravo Annie de ce fabuleux partage!
Amicalement Odile

Hi Annie,
fantastic work and message. yes i believe if we could "seed" all of the earth of trees like that, a lot could change for the better.


Superbe capture.
Bonne netteté et détails.
Et tu les as enlevés un à un?????

Hi Annie
A dramatic ! title and an equally strong capture of the wild flowers in the direction of the wind. Lovely perspective sharp details and nice diagonal umrolling of the foto

Hello Annie,
Great shot, absolutely beautiful vibrant colors, excellent composition and pov, very good sharpness and depth of field, lovely oof background and very nice light.

Hello Annie,

Wonderful work with the diagonal blur.
Well done!

Malik & Mary.

Hi Annie,

What a wonderful army to share with us. I know gardeners don't like these flowers, but they are so bright and sunny and sure have a way of making the landscape look great. Lovely PP work and note!


Bonjour Annie
Voilà un bien joli bouquet de " mal-aimés" pourtant si colorés. Les différentes teintes de jaunes sont très variées et très jolies, une belle lumière vient révéler le vert de la scène mais ce que j'aime par dessus tout, c'est ce reflet diaphane sur la plastique de la serre.

Bonjour Annie :)

Un seul mot: M.A.G.N.I.F.I.Q.U.E
Je me suis attardée sur le fond, je trouvais cela très jolie et peu commun comme effet et BG. Bien entendu, j'avais hâte de voir qu'est ce que c'était en lisant la note.

Merci de partager. C'est bien réalisé et bien fait.
Bonne journée Ensoleillé a toi.

Josée :)

Lovely tones and light in it.
Very good angle of shot and framing.
Thanks for sharing this beauty with us.

Bonjour Annie
La vivacité du jaune embellit le contraste avec la partie gauche de l'image plus vaporeuse,c'est très bien vue ce rendu.Toujours des images de très bonne qualité.
Bonne journée

Bonsoir Annie :o)

Note très agréable à lire, excellente idée, j'aime beaucoup :o) Tu as choisi un magnifique angle et le net VS le flou est merveilleusement bien maîtrisé, très joli travail. Les couleurs sont très belles.

Hi Annie, fascinating invasion, splendid focus, great view with wonderful flowers, fantastic colors, very well done, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hello Annie

It is wonderful the look of these yellow flowers.
an excellent composition and as always of very good taste yours.
I like his formation and mainly the reflex
of them in the covering of plastic, of the a depth sensation, of as if it extended the field.
Congratulations, definition of the picture and wonderful.

Hello Annie! Great work with what is essentially a 'found' image (plastic cover) reflecting the dandelions in a dreamlike atmosphere. Super lighting, wonderful capture!

The good depth in the picture makes it like a yellow invasion Annie.

Hello Annie,

No doubt - dandelion time!
For a short period every year they come to brighten our day, then they go but not without leaving some traces, hehehe...
Maybe not the most popular of flowers but I like them!

Pablo -

Annie, I don't what say...It's excellent, absolutely excellent!
