Limbo (Latin limbus, edge or boundary, referring to the "edge" of Hell) is an idea about the afterlife condition of those who die in original sin without being assigned to the Hell of the damned. (5 years and 2417 days ago)

I got the image of a spring and selected it using the pen tool.
I put it over the flamingo in the source image after I made it bigger. I used the ctrl+Shift+I+ Del method to cut the flamingo into the spring shape. I played with the blending modes and opacities to get the spring to look more like the initial flamingo. I masked a lot using layer's masks.
Added leaves all around the image and sky in the backround. I added some gradient adjustment layers, brightness and contrast and shadows using different tones of grey.
Added some light beams and cropped the image for composition purposes.

SBS upcoming! (5 years and 2419 days ago)

There is no need to carry a lantern. Inside this forest there are plants that illuminate the surroundings.

I only used the flamingo and some brushes to create the image. (5 years and 2417 days ago)
