    I'm far from a "photo god", but I thought I'd comment anyways. First off, what exactly do you want fixed? I tried tooling with it a bit in Picasa, but I don't know if I should post it... it matters what you want the new version to look like. Also, I suggest you ask one of the mods to move this thread to the "Photoshop Challenges" forum.

    would help if you can post the original photo....because his face is transparent........is hard to imagine what high contrast is like on a transparent object?...you can also try to select "him" only with the lasso tool...and then adjust the contrast locally

    Are you asking that we do your homework?

    Where am I now?
    I presume that you mean you are not blending these pictures in 'Shop but are trying to do it in the darkroom with two negs through the enlarger?
    And when you say 'fix' do you mean in post-processing? Or how to get better results printing the original?

    No this is not homework I am simply playing in the dark room and wanted to send this photo to my friend but I was just wondering if someone would touch it up a little bit. nothing big... just doin it for fun. Hertz you are correct i did it in the dark room with two negs. I am not looking for anything specific just what ever anyone thinks would touch it up under there opinion.
