Joining Two Photographs Together

A customer sent me a scan of two faded black and white images. They wanted both images joining together into a single photograph as they had no copy of this original composition.

Firstly, I fixed the discrepancies in the tonal ranges. The fading within the image was uneven, so I used selective levels to get a balance throughout. I then applied sharpening.

The joining together of the image was performed and an orchard scene was added to the over-cropped top area of the image.
