This is about contrasts, between reality and fantasy, between the idea of fairies as beautiful and the city as gritty.

the composition is interesting with the L shape of the side walk and and dark rectangle area  then the brick with the figure keeping ur eyes on the page but the fairy is incorrect; her legs dont look connected to her body correctly, rather her right leg looks as if its where her belly button ought to be, sticking out at a strange angle...the other leg is better but not by much...it looks too low. the angle the head is at is a little iffy too but this is a difficult pose so you get points for trying =)
