Default Just do it! -- 60 Years Ago PART 2

OK, I noted some criticism of my original (i.e. the car's shadow and the reflection on the car's fenders). Here's another version using the same car (but from a different angle). This is the background I used.

And, my creation. Masked the car from it's background (pier). Note that I kept the original shadow of the car, instead of trying to create one. Deleted the pavement in front of the house, replacing it with a shot of a stone wall. Changed the sky and masked out the neighboring house. Converted all layers to B&W, then applied a sepia effect. C&C welcome.

I like it Walter. I am glad to see that you got rid of most of the annoying features of the original photo (such as the flying submarine!!). Now if you had just cloned out those signs, it would be perfect.

Another good job but do agree that the signs need to go.

Amazing how different it looks with such a small change.
