Question
Dear Mr Eric Basir

 I have blent two pictures , one of me with another from a movie  , performing only one photo . How to aproximate the colors to make it appear something more natural ?

Answer
It's very hard to answer the question without seeing the pictures. Blending two different pictures not only depends on color, but it depends on matching the grain, and element of focus. If color is the only thing you are worried about, then you might be able to desaturate both images and then recolor them manually with your color palette of choice. I hope that helps!
