Default Background replacement

Saw this interesting modified 1930 Ford at a local car show...with a busy background.

Spent an hour or more painstakingly masking out the background in CS6, and saving as a PSD file

Then, placed the masked car onto a shot of our main library entrance. Created a vignette on that shot and added a light shadow effect for the car. Finally, added a frame and text. C&C welcome.

Good job, Walter. Very painstaking work. Looking carefully, I feel you could have changed the reflection in the rear-view mirror (which is retained the same as in the original photo), and added a little look-through-glass effect for the windshield.

That is certainly a lot of work, great job. Makes my attempts feel like crude cave drawings.

Cave drawings would be a step up for me.

I like what you have done but the perspective seems a bit off to my eye. Would it be possible to move the truck back a bit? Maybe place the truck in the circle I see to represent a static display?

Love the effort
