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
2 out of 3 deviants thought this was fair.

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:
