Really beautifully lit Keith. If I'm really looking hard for suggestions to make I do tend to agree with Nick on the placement of the photo as a minor point. I love the quality of the specular highlights on the books though and reflection in the desk.
I think most of the helpful feedback has been said but just to add that years back I read a photoshop compositing tutorial and the key to a convincing result really was to have everything shot in the same way. In addition to the similar direction and quality of light that's been mentioned, the focal length and dof of the shot need to match for best possible results, e.g. model shot with a mid/telephoto lens against a wide angle landscape will tend to look a little like a cardboard cutout whereas similar focal lengths will be more natural/convincing.
Welcome to epz Neil - I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
