Re: Improve this composite

Good observations, thanks for the feedback. Is this the problem regarding perspective? (different camera height and angle)?

Is there any way to make the image work with these background images? I tried perspective warping the background but I couldnt get it to make any major difference.

Re: Improve this composite

This is largely a colour and light direction issue not camera angle. Warping the background of very little use.

You must remember the horizon line will always be level with the viewers eye level regardless of being on a ladder or lying down (for viewer substitute camera).

Due to this the horizon line will not correspond to your subjects eye height as your position may be below them (you sitting down them standing) or your position above them (you standing or on ladders and them being sitting or a child).

In the case of your model she is obviously above the camera height but that does not really matter as it suggest the camera at lower (waist level). Correct the colour and lighting on the model as previously said and you will be closer to a believable composite
