There is a two bath process using Selectol soft and then hard developer but I don't know how much difference it would make.

If it's any consolation I thought your second version nearly had it right. OK the man in the background was a little dark and could have been dodged or possibly lightened with highly dilute bleach on a cotton bud and water played on it.

All these things sound easy but take practice and time to get right.
