No so simple

You can't put a subject on a different background quite as easily is stacking one atop the other. Do your best job to make the two images match, but then the hard part begins: the painstaking photo editing.

There is light coming from your background. That light, and the color it reflects, should appear on your subject. Say you have a sunset. You need to take those sunset colors and show how they're bouncing off your subject's hair and shoulders (or whatever the subject is). If the light of the background is coming from one side, the subject should be lit from that side.

If you post an example, I can give you suggestions.
