Hi, the setting is mystical and I see how you’re going for that ethereal look. I look at it as a whole impression, then at each element.
What the picture makes me want to do is, first, warm the girl’s face. She’s a bit ashy against the vivid greenery.
I like the wings but they seem to blend into the trees instead of being defined.

Can you copy the image (so you keep your original), then give it some shadow and depth? It wants distance. The far off trees are suggesting it but as they’re so sharp, the background looks like the backdrop in a theatre or movie.

I hope I’m not being too picky or harsh. Your idea is lovely. Keep in mind as I make these comments that I’m more of an artist than a photographer, tho’ I enjoy learning that area as well.
