This is magnificent and truly a work of art!
I can imagine the sheer amount of effort involved.

I myself am no great artist, but I hope I can add a few suggestions to improve the "after" image.

1. The background forest & foliage, though extremely beautiful (and quite an improvement on the original), doesn't seem to blend into the scene perfectly. It looks slightly like a 2-dimensional wall (with the forest greenery as a wallpaper), so perhaps you can think of tilting it a few degrees to add a sense of depth, or maybe adding additional foliage to curve around the woman on the pond (subject). A few floating flowers might also be a good idea.
2. Perhaps you can try to make the lighting and shadows more in sync. For instance, in the after image, the light is streaming from top onto the forest floor, whereas the woman and pond leaves seem to have the light source more from the front.
3. The fish in the after image, is too perfectly shaped and clear. Sure, it makes it very obvious in the scene. But if it is being viewed from above the water, the refraction would make its streamlined body more vague with deeper shadows. For instance, you can hardly see the fishes in the original scene, despite the amount of daylight available.

Please note these are meant as positive critiques and in no way do they digress from your amazing piece of art here.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful artistry, and we hope to see more from you in the future!
