Pod,
Very nice comp work but the are some tell signs that still need work. On her left side of the cape we can see signs of liquify in the clouds. The waves between her legs need to be blended more. The bottom of the cape between her leg doesn't look realistic. And the background appears to be sharper than the models face. Sorry to be so critical but all those can be fixed.

Re: C&C for composite work for bikini shot !

pod,
A nice selection for the composite.
I agree with what JD said... especially the sky around the cape.. very noticable.
Another is the depth of field. With everything in focus, we are not drawn to the model. Our eyes wander around looking at everything else. A very subtle change could help.
Also, similar to JD's comment, the background looks to have been at a higher resolution that the model when they were merged. Hence, the model has poor dithering, especially on the edges.
Hope this is helpful.
Good luck with it !
