Here is a Butterfly I'm working on & I'm looking for some feedback. Do you think the leaves in the background conflict with the insect?

I think the butterfly does kinda fade into the leaves behind it. You could either alter their color or simply distance them from the butterfly; either way, it'll help the composition if you get at least part of the butterfly's silhouette into a color that isn't its own.

The butterfly itself looks great, athough the body feels a bit big compared to the wings. Great detail though.

The compositing isn't bad, actually. You've got the color and the lighting of the insect very close to that of the photo- but what makes the insect stand out as a "fake" is that it's sharp, whereas the flower (which presumably is close behind it) is blurred.

Also, the motion blur on the wings seems a bit excessive, and the legs seem a bit thick. And..maybe a bit of cellular bump on the eyes, so they don't look so plain, perhaps.

Your textures look quite nice. Keep it up!
