Creative head switching

Looking at Source Pictures and the Photo Edit is like a game of "what's different" between the pictures. See how many differences you can find. :)
Some photo edits are easier than others. This one was very involved. Click picture to enlarge. There were two head switches and significant color changing and matching. Each picture source had very different color profiles and to make them all one cohesive, believable picture takes a critical eye. Softening, blending, skin work, etc. After I finish a project I like to overlay the original picture and edited picture and shut off and on the layers and watch the heads move. This one was significantly humorous to watch because of the baby head switch since it looks like he is turning his head.
