Persephone's return by Iardacil Persephone's return by Iardacil
Persephone is the goddess of the underworld in Greek mythology. She is the daughter of Zeus and Demeter, goddess of the harvest. Persephone was such a beautiful young woman that everyone loved her, even Hades,God of underworld, wanted her for himself. One day, when she was collecting flowers on the plain , the earth suddenly opened and Hades rose up from the gap and robbed her
Broken-hearted mother wandered on the earth, looking for her daughter and she learned that Pesephone was robbed. Demeter was so angry that she withdrew herself in loneliness, and the earth ceased to be fertile. Knowing this could not continue much longer, Zeus sent Hermes down to Hades to make him release Persephone. Hades agreed, but before she went back he gave Persephone a pomegranate. When she later ate of it, it bound her to underworld forever and she had to stay there one-third of the year. The other months she stayed with her mother. When Persephone was in Hades, Demeter refused to let anything grow and winter began.
And when the time is full and she return to world and mother and daughter will be together again, everything began to grow again.. Her every step bring life back to Earth.. This is the greatest happiness they two could found..

My forth manipulation :) (ok.. I stop counting.. on five?!)
edit: re-done to hair.. this seems much better

Gorgeous shapes and colours! I like the way the cloudline seems to join the sparkles from the tree, and how the grass and daisies almost reflect that. (featured)

^x^ I'm glad, you really did do an amazing job. I haven't really tried photomanipulation yet (I'm workin on my first try now...), but I hope I can do this well once I have the hang of it.

And thanks for stopping by my gallery and commenting! I really appreciate the compliment ^x^

...wow...what an imagination. ^.^ This is a really beautiful scene.
I would have mirrored the tree seeing as the lighting is coming from the other direction. The coloring of the girl is a little bit off i think, but looks okay. Anyway, I really like this piece, you did an excellent job blending everything together.

That light and tree notice was really great.. I do know.. I never saw my mistakes.. I am too deep in that.. working.. I always have to ask my sisters or mother to take a look and say - this is out of perspective.. and this don't go like that...

Thank you for your advises and nice comment :D
