It's kind of silly to be honest. Those glow effects look unnatural and add nothing. In fact the blue glow is sitting right on top of a cast shadow which is completely backwards.

There's nothing wrong with special effects, but use them for a specific goal instead of randomly.

PS: Lens flare!

with a light, soft tone background most effects would end up flat and dull

I can kinda see the style you were gunning for with this edit but yeah...unfortunately you've fallen short of the mark. This particular style is not easy to execute but you know, practice makes perfect.

I think it would be good to post a simple, no-nonsense image if you want to get simple no-nonsense feedback.
