The Goddess Brighid by wintersmagic The Goddess Brighid by wintersmagic
Brighid is a sun goddess, symbolised by the sun wheel, whose flame of purification serves her as a fire goddess of hearth and home. In addition she is a Goddess of the threshold, of the gates between this world and the Otherworld. (updated 19.10.13 and replaced original credited stock from sxc.)

I LOVE FANTASY SCENES!!!! And I especially love what you have done with the red sorceress stock image :)
I find the light effect that creates a sort of "halo" around your sorceress quite effective - especially the red and green tones in the light. Surprisingly, it was the first thing I noticed when I saw your deviation.
I like to fiddle around with Photoshop, too, but it's been a while since I have done that...
The only thing that I think can be done better is the archway - you used a pale white "mist" there, and although it creates a strong contrast between the head and the background (therefore, making it stand out more), the difference in colour tones is a bit too strong, and it might have worked better if the effect was a bit more faded or if the colour saturation change weren't so dramatic.
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
3 out of 4 deviants thought this was fair.

It's marveless how you have combined all those different images into your art! One could believe it was made in one piece! 

This makes me wonder even more how there can be people who claim photomanipulation wasn't art.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments. I'm still learning to use photoshop and make manips. I can't paint or draw which is why I use it. I downloaded a free trial from adobe and followed some online tutorials to get started. All the pieces on here-including this one- were made by playing around with stock images and textures and experimenting with the settings in photoshop.

Than I see you as a student-I must admit you doing very well, :clap:. I will go through this part one day(I hope), for now I am stuck to photography only-which I love as much as photo-manipulation: btw. I wish you all the best in work you doing now and in feature :heart:
