Hannah and Saltburn Pier

By pdove  
This is my first venture into compositing. Hannah was shot in a studio a couple of weeks ago. The pier image was shot a few years ago. Neither image was taken with the composite in mind. This was simply a couple of images chosen from my hard drive that seemed to work together and gave me the opportunity to learn about basic compositing images.

I like the image, but find the skirt on the right doesn't look right. I'd have been tempted to remove the billowing bit down the fold line, which I think would give a more natural look.

Excellent job of combining the images, but I agree with Norm, the skirt on the right looks as though there should be something holding it up - would look more natural if removed to the fold line - (I think !!)

the lighting is different on the background and the model, though it's akin to using off camera fill in anoutdoor setting. Somehting to consider in composites.

The dress does have a sharply defined outline so applying a degree of feathering to your cutout would make for softer edges and a more realistic blend. If you still have the layered version you always go back and experiment.

Thanks to all for your awards, comments and especially the critique. I will look at these points when I have another go at composites.
