Selections from several photos of my grandkids taken at Halloween, converted to black and white and placed on a black background. Played with blurring and blending options, some dodging, and a lot of repositioning to find a placement I was satisfied with.

*Hello from Sid and the Critique club*

A spooky image that meets the challenge

I like your different approach in choosing three portraits and compositing them together like this. The actual execution of it is rather lacking in finesse but this is one of those rare occasions that actually adds to the end result. The way the right ear of the middle portrait overlaps the first one is an example of what I am referring to, the cuts are all ragged but again the way they are appearing out of the black has let you get away with it because of the nature of the challenge. I like that you have used the diagonal for your composition it makes it more dynamic.

Good idea, well done. Thanks for your submission, Sid
