So I have been messing around with this shot all day, trying to practice some compositing work. Something feels off to me...thoughts?

Explosions don't have drop shadows, and they're a lot faster.

To me it seems strange that the explosion doesn't really affect anything. Nothing flies off the door and the soldier runs right through it. So it looks more like a harmless flash or light phenomenon rather than an explosion.

In my view there should be a lot of debris in the air, plus dark smoke, in addition to the flash. And I expected the soldier to fly off to the opposite wall, not run right through like nothing much happened.

The way he "fades in" through the explosion looks very unnatural.
