It's not right.
I'm looking for better ways to get a more natural blend.

Interesting ... but way far outa my realm (I think).

You might want to post up the individual components so others can see what you've got to work from / with.

The woman is looking out of the image. You would have a stronger composition if you flip her at 180 degrees and rotate downwards so she looks in towards the center of the image. I also considered that you were trying to show her moving out of the image towards the sky but the image by itself does not seem to tell that story.

Out of my realm too, but I feel like she is too sharp for this. Maybe that's the point.

I don't know if this slight rework is a little clearer in intent.

I assume you want attention drawn to the woman flying in a dream, however she’s a small percentage of the overall picture. Such that the eye wants to explore the rest of the picture which is in sharp focus, rather than concentrate on her. So you have competing subject matter. That’s my two cents worth.

Thanks for the feedback so far, I'm deeply unsure of the image at the moment. (that's when I tend to turn up here...)

As to attention, I am looking to show an idea of winter arriving, rather than focusing on a flying girl. (I trust that if I'd wanted the girl to be the focus, she would be!)

I know there's more work to be done. I'm just struggling to see what it is.

Perhaps select the area not close to the subject and reduce the gamma and saturation? Maybe bump the mid-tone contrast on the flyer?

Paul,

Interesting imagery - this is likely well over the edge...
