I LOVE this picture!  One of my favorite Hades/Persephone pictures ever - I had it as my desktop image for a while, but I didn't know where it came from until now.  :D

Great work... I like how Persephone is the only source of warmth in the picture.

Amazing. I love how it shows emotion and sets a story among the people who view it. There is wonderful detail and I must admit that I love how the darkness surrounds Hades while a spot of light and flowers surrounds Persephone. Great work!

Looks like I might not be the first person to feel this way but:
Just saw this image for the first time (on a youtube vid no surprise) and I was blown away.
The image does what all good images should, which is to instantly create a story in the mind of the viewer.
