those are different
was this taken at the wedding?
how did you get the black background?

can you overlay a photo of the groom in one, the bride in the other so they are looking at each other, print it, frame it and give it as a present ??

The glasses were at the reception sitting on the bridal party table. Every one was dancing and I was taking a few shots. When I looked at the shot originaly the table they were sitting on was black and the background a darkish grey. hhmmm I thought it might be nice to have a black background so I selectied the glasses with the magnetic laso ans then zoomed in close to fine tune the selection. After that I inverted the selection and went to the brightness / contrast adjustment and turned the brightness all the way down. I had to do that twice to make the whole background black. At first I was pleased the result but then I saw that when I selected the glasses some of the greyness that I wanted black was behind the glasses and thus remained grey. So I went to color adjust/change and used the eydropper to select the grey color and changed it to black thus sort of giving the illusion that there was a black background behind the glasses. Of course I twiddled with the levels , brightness and contrast of the glasses themselves. I am sure the effect could have been done better but I thought my version wasn't bad for about 20 or so minutes of playing around.
