playing with the opacity probably wont work for this scenario.
In fact, what you should try is to play with some layer masks..
please provide me the raw photos if you have any, and will try to work on in for you.

No need to use RAW. Plenty of websites with guides. Google it and you will find. I will briefly explain how I do it to combine 2 images.

2) Open the next image in the sequence. Copy this and paste it in the base image as a new layer. (new layer is automatically created). You can close the second image after this.
3) You should now have the second image pasted over the base image. Press F7 if you can't see your layer window.
4) With the second layer selected, click on Layer-> Layer Mask->Hide All. Can't remember the exact command name. I'm writing this off my head :-)
After this is done, only the base image is seen. That's okay.
5) Select the paint brush and a suitable size. Make sure that your colour selection is black and background is white.(there's a hotkey for this but can't remember). Now, the black paint that you apply to this image will be the second image. Isn't that cooool? I love this. If you painted salah you can press 'X' to select white and undo. Once you've painted in the bits of the second image you want, you can also use the 'Move' tool to position the guy in the right place. This is useful when you took the shots without tripod and the sequence does not follow a nice curve/line that you want.
6) Painting in the rest is just a matter of applying the same steps.
I hope this helps and encourages you to try this. All I can say is that with this, the 3fps rate on my D70 is not enough :-(
