Hi Ruben. I appreciate the attempt to get everything in camera. I try to do the same. I think for what you were trying to accomplish here a different shooting approach and post processing would be a big help.

If you look at each of the exposures you can see she's transparent from the lights shining through her. Taking separate frames of each pose and stacking them with the background allows you to adjust the opacity. You'd also be able to mask out the errant shadows on the road and behind the right exposure. Keep at it.

thanks for replying. I try to explain . She stend up for left pose and i use flash light (15-20 secs) , then she just change her pose and i use flash light second time . It's all take 30 secs and i shoot this in dark . There is no using any editing progs . Only Light room . In my Instagram @1akntart i do more difficulkt thing - long exposure with jump . And i do BTS for that shot . Take a look or DM me in instagram and i send you RAW file )

Also i use old camera for night shots ( Nikon D3 ) . Thats way its more difficult to get more quality from photos like this (((

Interesting idea, certainly creative, but the shadows don't match and once seen I cannot unsee that.
I also find the light too bright on the left pose.

As Bruce said, some lights can be seen through the model. Positioning the model so that there's no light directly behind her might help to avoid that, otherwise perhaps some "repair" on the photo in LR?

Personally, I also don't like the expression on the face of the model and for me that distracts from the quality of the image -- it's more of an exercise in technique to me, than a nice image to look at.

I think that the concept is good enough though to warrant a retry and it's more original than my own work. :D

I understand how you took the photo -- but LightRoom does have a "repair" feature to repair "blemishes" on the image. That can be used, I think, to "repair" the lights showing through the model.
