Default Does it look real?

Sometimes digital modifications are made to create an "unreal" image, albeit attractive and/or eye-catching. One can also use digital manipulations to create an image that looks "real". That's what I tried to do, using the 3 images below:

All looks good except for the left lean of the auto. If the auto and man were on a single layer there is a plugin for Photoshop which can produce a perspective shadow. That would top it off. Then I dont see how anyone would know the difference real or not. The lighting of the car and man seems fairly consistent. Nice job.

i agree with bynx. the only thing that doesn't look right is the lean. nicely done otherwise.

Here's a slightly different angle of the car (required a new mask -- 30 minutes), with 2 different characters.

What kind of lens did you use to shoot the car with. It must have been a real wide angle to get that much distortion. I think you have to straighten it up if you want it to look right. Or else lean everything else over the left. Here is the difference. You might want to pull it over even more to the right.
