Taken in Washington DC. Used a friend's terrace area. Half the city is New York and the birds were individually dropped in

I really like the style and color of this photo. She fits in perfectly and the pop of red against the otherwise muted tones draw attention immediately.
Two things throw me off unfortunately:
1. The composition is a little bit confusing. If she is the main focus, you would want her a little bit more to the right (more like either golden ratio or thirds). If you want the birds to be the focus, the s-curve of the flight path would have to be a bit more accentuated, as they look kinda random now.
2. The lighting on the birds doesn't fit the scenery. It's either a rather overcast skyline or a sunset to the right (judging some buildings in the background) but the birds are all lit harshly from above (as birds mostly are photographed from below). That's why they still look out of place although the colours match pretty well.
