Yeah – I like this one a lot. I think you could lose the hat, as it creates a focal point that is’t needed. You could move it to the bottom right, and that would work better.

You’re absolutely right about the hat, I’ve moved it on the bottom-left, to balance the moon, thanks! The moon’s fantastical look is a common element in these types of collage btw.
