Angry evil restoration

okay. I am really new at photo restoration and I'm trying to restore this photo...

The lady would like only the gentleman on the right to be restored. I scanned it in at 900 dpi, and then proceeded to wreck it completely! In the original photo you can kind of see the guy's body and now he looks like a disembodied head!!! Any help would be SUPER appreciated!!

You might want to make two scanning passes, one optimized for the darkest areas and another for the lighter. Make sure you have auto-everything turned off and you have the scanner under your control. Then check out the individual color channels on each. On the sample you provided, the red channel seems to hold just a little more information.
