Once again, my carefully thought out strategy was wait until the last day of submission to comb the last month for a couple of semi-interesting images, and then play around with blending modes. In this case I went with Darken. When I submitted this I wondered if I would have been better off just entering one of them individually rather than a mix of the two. However, it finished better than I expected.

For anyone interested, here are the base jpg's straight out of the camera:

Don just nailed describing the effect it had on me.
Streets more interesting than the sum of it's parts, IMHO.

I maybe would have been better off just entering one of them.

Oh, I dunno. This is a most interesting thing to look at. Creative.

you've created an operatic composition with a clear hero.

I'm hanging this in my fantasy gallery

Nice contrast how the "real" girl is trisected but the shadow girl is solid.
