The Promise of Spring by s15jesusfreak The Promise of Spring by s15jesusfreak
This picture lifts me up so much! I hope it will do the same for you if you are waiting for spring to come!

Inspiration: Burst of Colours by ~zephyrmelody

I listened to this song nonstop while working on this picture. It became the theme song for it! =) It's just so fun and makes me want to go dance in the field. [link]

Story behind the picture
It's really amazing how incapable I am of sticking to a concept. :no: I had originally planned to have this really cracked ground leading into the picture, to show a truly desolate place, leading to a beautiful field you just have to run in! There would be a rainbow there, the symbol of a promise. Great concept! But I couldn't figure out how to blend the rainbow with any sky photos. This cloud shot immediately clicked, and I threw out the old concept. It's better to throw out a bad idea than to simply go along with it for the sake of finishing what one started!

I know the tree is greatly flawed, but I worked really hard to blend everything together and to make it believable. I think this is one of my best. It feels great to finally produce something worth seeing after a lot of failures. I was right to follow my instincts. I'm keeping my original title because it still fits!
