Well, what you think about shadows, lights and position of this lady? What will you add if you're on my place?

I have a lot of suggestions on this one, but if I miss something forgive me :) I will try to be clear:
- first, searching for a good resources could be really helpful, in this work you used low quality sky image, use more time to search for a good and quality photos, if you're not much experienced with photo-manipulation good photo will additionally improve your work;
- position, desert or mud is becoming bigger in front plan which makes model smaller - you need to move the model up. I think her head need to be near or little over the water, don't know exactly, you have to experiment with that;
- her shadow under her is too big, also shadow behind is too long. Light is falling on her from left to right, but on sky it seems like right to left. Anyway, that happens, you can't always determine source of light on images, that's why images with neutral lights and shadows are the best for photo-manipulation... again, it's saving your time
- now, whole work seems like you're duplicated layers and and made layers mode to hard light

anyway, if you need some tips in Photoshop don't hesitate to ask ;) keep practicing, that's the only way of becoming good in something

hope this will help you a little for your future works

I understand I took "Big Shot" of manipulation at the moment.
I'm begginer in photomanipulation and I'm trying to do something simple but this is kinda hard because of lot of light sources, etc.
Can you give me some web pages with photomanipulation resources in high quality, Thanks.
I have to start with something easier.

I agree with you. That's why I suggested that you start with more quality photos. Free and quality resources you can find here: viewtopic.php?f=29&t=49 (skip 2. and 3. they are sites for a renders)

On deviantart (http://browse.deviantart.com/resources/) I will suggest you to search for a 'premade backgrounds' - this will make your manipulations easier for a start (not all of them are good but you will make a choice depending on your inspiration. This is one of my favorite models: http://faestock.deviantart.com/ - photos are really in good quality and you can use it, just provide every author of an photo with credits, you can see how I've done it in my topics, last one is here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=2728 - respect authors of the photos, credit them and you will not have a problem of using any stock photo Also, remember this: if you have a patience you can do everything.
Now let's see your next works and I will give you some tips which can help you to improve your technique ;)
