I like the general idea, but I don't think this image quite works. The split is executed well. Composition is OK and the backlighting on the model is nice, though I might have tried to get a little closer and put a bit more space between the sun and the model. However the sun flare overpowers everything, the model is almost lost as a result, and the UW scene is dull and lifeless (but I guess in SWFL that's a good thing!). The lens reflection is indeed a distraction but very hard to avoid when looking straight into the sun.
Now if you could just go back and get a ND filter on the sun, a remote strobe on your model, and move the whole UW scene to a colorful reef, you'd be all set ;-)
