Help! Looks like a "paste-up" job to me.

What can I do to blend his head into the photo so that the finished product doesn't look so much like what it obviously is: a composit of a head, suit, 2-piece background and shirt. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

well...

without playing with it, I can't say for sure, but the first thing I'd try is to lock the transparent pixels and gaussian blur it slightly.

The head

The size of the picture is a tad small, but just looking at it it appears to me that the head is not centered properly on the neck. It should be moved to the subjects right some.

Thank you very much philbach and glikster for your suggestions. As soon as I finish plowing today (the 22" of white stuff from yesterday), I will implement both suggestions and post the results. Thank you again.

It would help...

If you could post the original and the picture you want to add the original too, also its a tiny picture, and it looks like you added your "gentleman" to a very lightened background which in respect will make the gentleman look as he does, standing out of the crowd is one thing but having him look like he does not fit in is another, i tried to change it alittle, but i am new to restoring, so i shall upload, and ask for you to add the original and the background and maybe explain more what you like done with it.

Say i used the neat plugin to blend, then in photoshop changed the curves, then i used the healing wand, and got the picture above.

One of the problems is the lighting on the face is different to the body, I think I'd try using shadow/highligh on the body only, to lift it a little, and maybe tone down the face (when you get it centered) If you post a better pic, I'll have a play for you if you want. and I'm sure others will as well.
