Love this version of the couple.  The look in his eyes versus hers.  More H & P would be awesome.  This is one of my favorite pics of them.

Nicely done, I like the butterflies following in Persephones' wake. :)

Have you read 'Goddess of Spring' by P.C. Cast? It's a different (and sometimes amusing) take on the myth.
