very nice.

(technically: good handling of the shadows, however, the light on the new you seems to come from the wrong direction)

It's a nice shot, but with your older self I think you should have tried to match the blurriness/graininess of the original photo.

Love the opposites tilt. You are the most like your little self I've seen so far. Great Job!

wonderful. I would have blurred you a bit more and made you a little bidder, softened the shadow behind you. Your head is smaller than yours as a child. But they're just tips. I love it 8

Nicely done! A bit of blur would have matched them quite well :)

Nice, but really needed a bit more Photoshopping. You made an effort with the drop shadow and the colouring is pretty good, too, but blurring your current self to match the blurred photo would have made the world of difference.
