Actually, I already had the background done. I just wasn't having any luck with any of my model stock. Your pics worked out great though. Thanks.

Kewl, it looks nice! I need to learn how to integrate background/foreground better since the majority of my photomanipulations focus more on the character than the world they're in. I like the way you made her part of her world =}

For this one I actually cut a piece of the background in the shape of the model, blurred it a little, and put the layer over the model in color mode. Then I just painted on the color layer to touch up the details and lowered the opacity a little. Also I used a few overlaid layers of flame fractals on top of the whole image for lighting effects that help tie the whole thing together. I find that duplicating layers in color and luminosity mode makes it a lot easier to manipulate than a single layer in normal mode.
Also, to blend her into the foreground, I just put a piece of the foreground over her ankles in lighten mode, and adjusted the brightness and contrast.
I don't know if this will help, its just some tricks I learned from a lot of trial and error.

That seems to make sense.. my biggest problem is blending of light sources since when I take the photo, I have a single static light source and I don't really plan ahead to what I'm gonna be doing with the background. When the background is constructed, I often ignore the lighting from the model so it sometimes looks like my model is light differently from the background or foreground =/

Usually playing with the inner and outer shadow and glow of the model cutout helps me with that, but sometimes I have to use the clone stamp to get rid of the shadows altogether. Honestly though, whatever you do must work, because the critic inside my head would have noticed that kind of discrepancy.

I always notice it in my own works... I guess what they say is true, you are your own worst critic =} It probably doesn't hurt that I know the details "behind the scenes", IE where the lighting rig was set up when I took the photo in relation the the model, etc. =}
