It is sometimes difficult to understand why something looks wrong in our final compositing and most of the time we can’t get what we did wrong. I can reassure you, it attempts to everyone, even great digital artists that are used to blending images together. Most of the time it’s because of the colors and how they should appear to your eyes in this particular scene you’re trying to recreate. Their hue, light, and saturation need to be perfectly accurate for them to match the ambiance of your image.
