Thank you all for your support, this really means a lot to me :)

And for the great Jim Miotke, it is an ABSOLUTE HONOR for me to recieve a comment from you. It's not a digital composite, I just brought up the color to make it more vibrant, that's all.

Once again, thank you all so much for your comments, and thank you BetterPhoto for making this piece a POTD.

I'm not a professional, but I can see this is a PhotoShop collage clearly. Girl shadow is not natural, it jump to anyone eyes.
Light come from right on model's body, however, shadow is perfectly droppend below her. However, where is shadows below picket fence? It's impossible that is dissapeared.
I'm sure model was not there.
So I think you are a great "compositer", but you say in not a digital composite.
That's my personal opinion.
