You should blend the render and the c4d more instead of leaving it on the back of the render. Also, you should edit the lighting to emphasize the red light coming from the c4d instead of having the lighting everywhere. I personally found this picture fairly simple 'cause I think you just took a stock+render+c4d+gradient?
To me this looks like a good start. What i think would make this THAT much better, is if you took the render, as well as the path behind him, and resize it smaller, place it a bit more up ahead on the path, and then place a nice shadow behind him, and blur the C4D trail the further it goes back. This way it creates a astounding amount of Depth, and a great overall appeal to the photo Manip.
The thing about this that kills it the most for me is that the render is so HQ that it just doesn't look like a picture that was taken. Like the Background looks grainy and a little LQ especially around the render and it just doesnt match up evenly.

it looks good overall dude, but i think u couldve worked a little harder on incorporating him into the scene more, and the relative smallness of the focal leaves a lot of wide open space
