I have a feeling some parts are a bit blurry or out of focus, probably because you haven't decided exactly what the shapes/materials/lighting are in those places... maybe try to sharpen your vision some here and there. Surrealism I think gets a lot of its emotional impact from the fact that things look quite realistic, but impossible... maybe some references might help, for instance for branches, cloth, faces of rotting corpses or something... also decide on the light - even if it's impossible light, it has to have some unity and internal logic to it.
I like the reddish orange and ochre scheme, not so sure about the purple and green though. The orange/ochre parts reminds me of decaying peaches for some reason. :)

ok not sure how focussed crit this is...but its personal opinion.
i like the woman with face in first pic.
like the greenish men additions...and elements of circle shapes on right hand side but needs to be fewer of them imo.
do not like the purple heads on left at all..
as i said not sure how much that helps...its just an opinion at the end of the day.
what you haven't told us is anything about the picture, background, or what you want to convey or the message or impression you want the viewer to be left with...if you majorly want to go for surrealist feel then you could really go further with the whole sheet/curved shape surrounding the woman...dunno keep experimenting with stuff and see what pops into your head and then post again..:thumbsup:
