Default 1955 Desoto Fireflight

I started with this picture taken a few days ago. A beautifully restored '55 DeSoto, but a lackluster background.

First, I masked out the car, then put a nice driveway base behind a black background with some opacity. Then, I added a sunset/ocean scene behind that, erasing the opacity from the black background only for that section (sunset/ocean). C&C welcome.

Walter...beautiful picture of a special interest car...the DeSoto. A neighbour has a '48 DeSoto...7 passenger, with a 383 Mopar V8 installed. Roof rack, used to be a train station and airplane depot pickup car for a dude ranch somewhere in the American West.

But your background improves the picture immeasurably...how do you do it ? I wish I had your talent.
