Same guy, four images composited into one image.

Thank you.

Lighting looks good (maybe with the exception of the reflections in the sunglasses?), compositing looks good.

but the clouds/smoke doesn't do it for me.
It looks just like "Filter > render > clouds" on "soft light" or "overlay" which just seems odd.
The image would have maybe been stronger without it. Or blended/masked differently to pull in more focus on the faces.

Thank you for the feedback. That was the first time I tried adding something like that. I had a feeling it looked a little canned. Next time I attempt something similar I think I'll go with the less is more approach.

Nice compositing. The only thing that bugs me about this is that the "smoke" clearly looks like the "Render Clouds" Photoshop filter you used to make it. There's no depth to this fake "smoke".

Thank you for the feedback. Your input echos another user's and reinforces my own feeling about the image. I'll have to revisit the image. Thanks again.
