Instead of just piecing together photos and manipulating them to the extreme, you need to instead, first learn the foundations of visual art. Right now, you know so little of the basic foundations that you are introducing all kinds of glaring mistakes into your image. Only by buckling down and studying the foundations will you start to understand how to construct a believable scene without all kinds of mistakes.

If you haven't already done so, I highly recommend you visit the Art Techniques & Theories forum (linked below in my signature). Read the sticky threads there, as they contain a ton of very helpful tips and resources that will make a huge difference in your artistic growth.

Did you read the lighting tutorial linked in one of the sticky threads? http://www.itchy-animation.co.uk/light.htm

That basic tutorial will help you understand some of what's wrong with your image.

The environment is a complete system of cause and effect, so you can't just piece different photo elements together without understanding how the system works. You need to learn about how light and shadow behaves, how the atmosphere alters the color of sunlight, how the sky dome bounces light, and so on.

If I were to sit here and explain all of that, it would take many pages of detailed instructions. If you were at an intermediate level, I could then just explain the aspects you don't quite grasp, but because you're missing all the basic foundation knowledge, I'd have to explain everything. That's why it's better that you just study the basic foundations of visual art (composition, perspective, lighting/values, color theory, anatomy/figure, etc). The sticky threads in the Art T&T forum have all kinds of learning resources for learning the critical foundations of visual art.
