Drawing Down the Harvest Moon


The Harvest Moon is the full moon that is seen nearest to the time of the autumn equinox. In the northern hemisphere it usually happens around September 22nd. It is called the Harvest Moon because at the end of September crops that were seeded in Spring are now ready to be harvested. Drawing down the moon is a central ritual in many contemporary Wiccan traditions, where a high priestess literally draws the moon Goddess inside of herself.

I feel this has a wonderful and mystical fantasy atmosphere.
I like very much how you have used the fractal source so lightly that it gives this a  very ethereal and visual appeal without detracting from your main subject.
I think this is beautifully done in the colors you have chosen to use and the use of your brushes.
The backwards L shape composition pulls all the elements together and give it very good balance.
The line of vision travel holds the viewer within the image area. It does not allow the eye to wonder off and makes the viewer take in more details of the image.
I feel the entire image  gives a very beautiful depiction of the the actual tradition of the wiccan religion.

Thank you so much for submitting this wonderful photo-manipulation that shows the beautiful side of Halloween :)
