I haven't put my usual PS description both cause I was short of time and because it was not a post of mine.
However , here it comes,hoping translation from my Italian Photoshop Elements is correct.
- Barbara second shot
- automatic levels
- selected white part
- picked up left-bottom color and right-top color
- linear gradient along the diagonal where I picked up the colors.
- hairs rebuilding with clone-stamp with natural brushes and some blur brush
- arm rebuilding with clone stamp
- Barbara's first shot
- Transform : perspective and free
- *) copy and paste to layer 3
- Layer-Styles\Complex\Chromium-Plating (Big) ( this is the frame around the shot )
- some blur brushes to reduce aliasing
- Layer-Styles\Outer Shadow
Layer 2 :
- a vertical selection of layer 0
- Layer-Styles\Complex\Matt Metal
- Layer-Styles\Outer Shadow (same values as of layer 1's style)
- layer vertical extension to get the 135° shadow completly visible
- the copt and pasted screwed shot as of * in Layer 1
- some small blur
- some small noise
Unique Layer- Effect\Matt Alluminium Frame
Funny how you think it is a mirror ( I had this idea later , but i dropped it cause it wasn't perfect ).
In my understading it was a flat display :lol:
P.S.2: I have also tried a surrealistic version : I attached the vertical clamp to the alluminium frame and merged it as it was parodoxically part of the outer frame: I dropped that idea cause it moved the center of attention to the merging zone.

Thank you, Sergio. Doing something like that never occurs to me when, in particular, I have a photo that's good but simply won't work as is. I particularly like the surreal effect you created. Looking like a mirror to me, it was as if it were reflecting a parallel world. Hmm...it's getting those writer's juices flowing... And thank for that too.
