Remember the Mona Lisa and The Starry Night? These two most famous paintings in the world of art still make the connoisseurs ponder. With a few pallets of color in a hand and a brush in another, Leonardo Da Vinci and Vincent Van Gogh created masterpieces that the history could never be able to throw in a pit of the forgotten trash.
Both the painters, especially the Leonardo, were the jack of all cards and master of one. The perfection they attained in their art was not an overnight happening. It took years of keen observation, practice, and most importantly - experiments. Afterall, one can’t assume how better an alteration will appear until they actually experiment, fail, and experiment again.

You’ve got the absolute authority here.
3. Double Exposure
Do you eat salad? Think of a plate of salad full with cucumbers and another one containing finely chopped cucumber and tomato. Which one do you assume, will look better? Of course the later one. The blend of the two different veggies adds contrast and colors to the plate’s appearance, making it appear more attractive. Same goes for the Double Exposure graphic designing. See the examples that how blending two separate entities can create an unforgettable effect:
