Let Your Light Shine Down



Give me a word - give me a sign.
Show me where to look; tell me, what will I find?
What will I find?
Lay me on the ground and fly me in the sky.
Show me where to look; tell me, what will I find?
What will I find?

Oh, Heaven let your light shine down...

I have been wanting to do a manip for this song for ages. What's funny is that I didn't even think of the song until I started working on the lighting in this piece. So..yeah. :XD:

I love the overall feel of this picture, how the dark clouds contrast with the lush green of the field and the tree. I love the shadow in the back and how crisp it makes the horizon.

I have to disagree with ~SelenaSapphayre I love the flowers. They have a similar effect to the tree in breaking up the picture a bit so it's not just the same thing. I also feel like they serve a symbolic meaning. I also feel cropping them out would mean losing the detail in the grass in the foreground.

I would have liked this better if the field curved up more on the right side like it does on the left side.

Overall it's a wonderful piece. Good job <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/>
