She seems to me a mortal torn between the light and the dark, faced with choices terrible to make. The generic symbol of God on the left is covered with blood, her blood, perhaps mingled with blood of christ. The devil on the right is clean, smoothly cut, handsome, and again generic. Her wings seem false and wrong for her body, they are cutting deep inside her, her christianity seems to be nothing but pain, with the darkness still smooth and enticing. Blood strewn everywhere, a hell of a place to live, and she the beauty trapped in this limbo between two bitter decisions.
Technically the image is pretty well done, but there are a few major glares. The biggest I see is the wings, they need better blending in with the surrounding pixels, it looks very superimposed. If it was your intention to make it look fake, try using a method that doesn't look so blurry and haloish, most people wouldn't get it. Others have commented on the blood, and I agree that parts of it does look rather unnatureal. Try studying more about bloodfow and the way liquid reacts to various surfaces. Maybe even experiement with a fluid with viscosity similar to blood. Remember though, blood is thicker than water.
Overall the image is excellent, the concept brilliant. Beautiful piece.

thank you very much for the detailed comment :) your interpretation is exactly what i had in my mind while doing it :)
about the image itself, i did it 6 months ago i think... by that time i only knew the basics of photoshop, i know i could have done it one thousand times better. Im planning to do it again, exactly the same image but with an extremely realistic look. I started it a few weeks ago but then i was having some problems with the wings (i was trying to use another kind of wings, bigger wings) and i gave up. I'll work in it again someday.

i like alot of your pieces, they have much expression and little hidden details...but this is really your master piece!

you know i love it, and i always want to come back and see it again!

its the terrible creepiness of a lost angel in the corner of a bloody, rusty, moisty, filthy place, (that appears to me to be a motel room)

has she been punished by heaven?
i think angels only bleed when their holyness has been taken away from them, i wonder what terrible deed she has done to deserve that.
