picture...

Shadows are terible. Used the eyedpropper to sample a lighter part of his face and then selected the darker parts added a new layer and filled at 40% added noise to simulate skin, took the opacity down. Added a layer mask, multiply and then used a soft brush at a lower oppacity to paint on the lightparts of arms of the bride. Used the healing tool to blend in the light spots and shawdow on his face... cut them into a better backgound avialable at morguefiles.com. Would need more time to finish..

Here is my try at this one. I used the woman's face from the second image. I worked on lightening and softening the shadows and enhanced the bouquet.

Well I thought I would have a go at this one too, although there have already been so many good solutions offered.

Like Amber, I copied the eyes of the bride from the second image, matched colour, pasted and transformed to fit the face. I'm still not completely happy with the eyeline though. I then selected, and duplicated the bride and set to multiply (at about 50% opacity) to reduce the overexposure, darken and increase detail. Finally I tried to open the groom's eyes up a little by copying each eye, and using transform. Oh - and I tried (rather roughly) to remove the cement barrier.

Whilst there are some absolutely wonderful reconstructions here, one of the problems for the bride I'd think, would be overall this photo is not as flattering as it could be. This is why I have stolen her face from the other photo as it looks far more flattering and softer.

Couldn't resist another go!

(Though Cassidy just beat me to it) I've pasted the bride's torso onto my last version. Of course the problem encountered here is the sun is coming from the opposite direct onto the bride and grooms face...

Cassidy and Caitlin

These are definitely NOT flattering originals at all...that is truly why I am here and rather embarassed even posting these but......know that one of you will pull through and teach me a great way.
Caitlin....I really am liking this last post only because the shadow is now covering the distortion of the face replacement as before it looked a little odd but still nicely done. I am sure that the client would not see it fit but, this last one is much more appealing.
