    Thanks Iggy, you are too kind, but I can honestly say (and with no false modesty) it was very simple and PS did all the work. All I did was paint out some layer masks. It literally did take 10 mins to do both of these, and most of that was playing with the exposure of the "start" shot to try to get it to match. I eventually decided not to get too fussed about it as the backgrounds were also not matching (although thinking about it afterward I think a selective Gaussian blur would probably disguise that as well)

    These are super nice, especially the first one, it is flawless. I have been invited to shoot a state level Special Olympic indoor track and field meet in about an month. I will bring my tripod and try to grab some and try to edit myself. The thing is, I have no clue where to start other than cut and pasting the runner, but I think it would look horrible.

    You don't necessarily need a tripod, just don't change exposure settings or focal length and either ensure overlap of the edges of images or be reasonably steady with camera angle. PS does a good job of aligning the images (remember it lines up panoramas the same way). Leaving space between the differing versions of the subject also helps.

    I am happy to lead you through it (to the best of my ability) at the time. If you are very patient with me and we can coordinate times, maybe even an IM or Skype session or something (it is a good excuse for me to join the 21st century and set up a Skype account).

    I would suggest you have a couple of practice runs before the main event if you decide it is something you wish to pursue. If you are not familiar with layers and layer masks in PS I suggest you become familiar with these first. After that it is really easy

    I used a demo GotoMeeting account last night to give someone a tutorial on Lightroom. You can actually take control of the mouse and keyboard remotely while you are doing a video chat. I just went to check pricing plans and they offer a free plan for meetings of 3 people or less. - https://free.gotomeeting.com/

    Not sure if this is what you had in mind. I enlarged the canvas and extended the track area and used layer masks. Added slight shadows.
