Athlete composited over volcano

Hi,

Here is my third (and final) photo in the series of my composited athlete. Any opinions on how to improve it?

(The first two photos in the series are discussed here:

Thanks in advance,

Peter

Re: Athlete composited over volcano

I see that you like mirroring your backgrounds quite a lot .

Just my opinion of course but I do find a few things somewhat disturbing/unbelievable. Of course it may be your intent to make an image this way, so FWIW:

Although you have worked on the the mirroring to look a little different it is still obvious that you have copied and flipped the volcano.

If the intention is for background effect is to be anywhere near believable then perhaps consider using just one volcano? Not sure if it happens in nature that you get two together.

Overall you athlete could stand to be a little lighter perhaps and the lighting effect on his right side could do with brightening somewhat to more closely match his left side
