You're welcome and sorry for the confusion - I should've been more clear.

Well, here is my final effort. I could never perfectly match the shadowing on his photo but without artificially placing shadows, a talent Im not sure I am ready to attempt, I think I got the two pretty close. Close enough to pass for a matched pair at the same sitting. Hope so. I appreciate everyone's help.

Really nice job on the girl! However you need to darken the man's eyes--they are much lighter than hers.

I agree with Phylllis, on both points.
It looks great, and I'm sure they be quite happy with your results!
But, I would do a bit of burn on his eyes, as they look a bit washed out.

Tex, I'd swop them around (as in Phyllis's pic). That way one gets more of a feeling of them looking at each other.

thought I would try my hand at this also.

I had alot of trouble matching the background color and tone so I cut it out completely. Copied hers several times and shifted each copy to cover her until she was gone and I was left with just the background colors. Selected gausian blur to get rid of any rough lines. Pasting him back into the picture and in an new adjustment layer played with the levels a bit until the tones almost mached, but it still looked alittle faded so I duped the layer and changed it to overlay at around 50%. Then I selected new adjustment layer, channel mixer to fix the tone alittle more. Then I used render lighting effects to change the lighting abit. It could use alittle more work, but I didn't have alot time time to work on it.
