Believer by mjdaluz Believer by mjdaluz
21 years i was surrounded by the grace of a fighter, when i was 17 she was detected of breast cancer, my grandmother made me believe in miracles. One day she was healthy and the next one she was feeling so down, even though we knew it hurt, she didnt let that show. Everyday we pray for her to win. She fought and won. I believe. I support. I care. But all that thanks to her, shes not here in presence anymore, but in spirit she will always remain giving me the strenght to fight everyday even if the battle seems already lost. The swan represents the purity , elegance and how delicate a woman can be, in a good sense. How important they are, we are, why we should care about keeping ourself save. The balloon as a hope, that could be realeased and lost but as we care it remains with as. Faith.

What a lovely tribute to your grandmother and other women who fight so hard against this disease. The colors are so beautiful. I love the pink and peachy colored sky and the rainbow that is reflected in the water. The trees and grass add lovely texture too.

What a beautiful picture and such a sweet message behind it. I love the symbolism with the swan and the balloon. I also really enjoy how you have given painterly touches to the photograph, especially in the background.

I originaly looked at this because I really liked the composition of it, with all the empty space in the sky, but I thought "I would have used any colour other than pink" until I read your description, now it all makes perfect sense and I like it even more.
well done!

really a beautiful manip, I like the sweet touch this pictures and all the others from you have.. :clap: If I'm allowed to criticize something, the swan should be considerably bigger.. ;-)
Siamon Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2007   Interface Designer
Amazing symbollistic portrait, the colors are great, especially the red fog and the tree behind.

One question: What does the balloon represent excatly? If the balloon is lost, the hope is lost? Balloon is your hope, but why? It can take you to the sky?

Si la historia que cuentas es personal, lo siento mucho :( Pero tambien felicidades por haber tenido a alguien tan fuerte y bella a tu lado, y que esos atributos se reflejen en ti para siempre :)

Ahora comentando el trabajo, me encanta la gama tonal, el ambiente etéreo las texturas y sobre todo la expresion y emocion que transmite la obra, agregado por supuesto la carga personal que veo lleva. :)

Bello trabajo. :heart:

beautiful it's blended so well! I love the way her hair matches with the backround. i had to fave it, I lost my mother to cancer, and this reminds me of her, although I had to laugh because of the swan, she was terrified of birds.
