So it appears I am in a rut with text lately, nothing I put anywhere looks okay, I just can't get it right. 
Any advice please <3

Hmm I really like the main text placement as well as the subtitle text. However maybe if you shifted the bigger models and the main text to the right a little you could shift the sub title text to the left of the main text but I think that would look odd with sight lines. Honestly I think maybe the color of the text makes it a little washed out so the placement in turn looks odd?

The problem I'm catching is that the text and big bellamie are fighing for focal point! My eyes cant figure out which to look at first and then I end up looking at text first because it's so bright then i see bellamie, who is facing the text and brings me back to it again!

 

I think if you made the text maybe a differnet color it wouldn't be the same. The focal point would draw you to bellamie first and then straight to the text because of his line of site. Maybe pick one of the lighter/darkish grey's from the tree line or the sky would be helpful as far as text color goes.

 

I think another thing is that the images and everything are practically over lapping. I don't think they need to be spread out just a little but maybe nudge things a bit so there is like a 2-5 pxl gap that makes it seem less crowded too could help seperate the focal point! 

 

In my personal opinion I think the font type and the size and the way you've layered it works really well it's mostly the color and focal point throwing it off at first glance! :)

 

Hope that's helpful. If not, ignore everything I had to say! :*

Okay, so I started with just changing the coloring of the text, is this any better?
