the triton

In Greek mythology, Triton is the son of Poseidon and Amphitrite and lives with them in a golden palace in the depths of the sea. He rides the waves on horses and sea monsters and he carries a twisted conch shell, upon which he blows either violently or gently, to stir up or calm the waves. Triton is represented as having the body of a man with the tail of a fish, but sometimes also with the forefeet of a horse.

Ahh, my mistake, This is the original. I really like how you've capture the light, and the light-dark tones. I'm also attracted by the subject. Do you know what it the mythology behind it?
