Eden Shore

I've done this months ago. Really. But I haven't had time to upload it since now (I use to be very precise while crediting, and this requires time..)

The idea came on my mind while I was doing a relax/meditation exercise, and I had to imagine a beautiful place (a locus amenus) in which I would find myself in complete balance with nature. I imagined what the shores of Eden would look like, to me.
I imagined a bay on a blue tropical sea, an endless sky containing all the phenomena that fascinate me: shooting stars, the aurora boreale, the starlit sky, a planet rising..
I have never seen an aurora, nor I think it would be possible to see it from a tropical shore. And the big planet rising from the horizon.. I think we are in the wrong solar system.

But this vision was paradise to me.

I represented no animals, but the serpent. He had to offer the apple. Yeah, I am a little Baphomet-ist, I admit.
I think that the serpent is wisdom, gained through experience, but gaining experience means losing innocence. We can't do anything against it. It's human.

This is a very impressive photomanipulation... you've blended all the elements together incredibly well. I love the way the planet and the aurora connect back in with the colors of the sea... it's just beautiful... I even have to compliment you on the border and typography, because they look gorgeous too.

this is great, its perfectly composed and the colours are deep which i feel are this pieces virtues. the type works well and has a good contemporary feel. would look awesome in a magazine!
Mindfucking's avatar
Oh thank you a zillion!!! >*<
I actually worked a lot on this one, playing around with saturation, colours etc. I wanted to give a really strong "feeling" about colours; the vision has to be intense.

Thanks so much for your visit and your comments *_* They are most appreciated.
