I'm practicing techniques by mashing together photos from UnSplash. I'm not quite happy with how the Earth looks, it just doesn't seem to sit right in the picture.

I tried to upload it here but I kept getting an error message of '-200', whatever that means. So had to link from imgur.

Your picture depicts the Earth as seen from a distance similar to that of the moon. Apart from atmospherics there would be considerably more detail visible. That perhaps is why it doesn't sit well within the picture? I know it's not easy. . .I've tried similar things myself. One thing I have found useful on certain pictures (it doesn't always work) is to lower the opacity to about 90% - this helps it to sit within the picture and at the same time allows a fraction of the background colour to pass through it. 

Apart from that it's a fine picture. 

Some scientists claim that hydrogen, because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I dispute that. I say there is more stupidity than hydrogen, and that is the basic building block of the universe.

These are not my own words but I sure like this quote.
