Re: Improve this composite

Everything. You didn't blend it at all. You need to match color of all the parts, saturation of all the parts, Hue of all the parts. Perspective. Lighting. You need to cut it out better. You need to expose her legs normally, not darkening with low opacity overlay...

Re: Improve this composite

How should the perspective change? Isn't her eye level supposed to be on the horizon?

Brighten the foreground? Making the model match the current foreground would make her too dark I assume.

Re: Improve this composite

This is a check on the hues. What needs to be changed hue-wise?

Re: Improve this composite

Your model shoot straight, buildings from below and water from above. What about luminosity map? You have 3 lights on the model, it's not supported by background. Rocks near her the same color as her skin, how come her skin that saturation and hue, and not the rocks? Dark halos around body. Glowing elbow, where is the light source? Dark brushes on buildings not supported, no depth, just splatters...
