I'm trying to replace a head in a family photo, and as I don't have a lot of practice at that kind of task, I'm having trouble making it look realistic. Out of a series of ~10 shots, this was the best of the family, but the baby was never looking at the camera in any of them. So I'm trying to take her head from a photo that was taken about a minute later in the same location, so roughly the same lighting. Zoom is different, so I scaled her head, but maybe the change in perspective makes it more difficult too.
I'd like some help with this, and have added links to the two original raw files at the bottom if anyone wants to play around.
Anyway, here is my attempt. I developed the family shot in Lightroom, and synced the develop settings to the shot I took the head from. I scaled the head down to try and match size, and also adjusted brightness using curves and a layer mask to try to more closely match the lighting. It looks off to me, but I can't quite figure out what is wrong or what to do:
Here is the original for comparison:

Thanks for the help.
