Default The Thing

In 1981 I bought my H.S. daughter a used VW Thing, which was one of the coolest set of wheels to drive here in Surf City USA. I spotted this one at our local car show, masked it out in Photoshop, placed it in a scene of a downtown section. Then, in Topaz, used ReMix to create this look. C&C welcome.

Cool picture, reminds me of the effects I can get in Deep Art Effects on my phone.

The only CC I can offer up is that the vw is not reflected in the window. You can see the post from across the breezeway, but not the vehicle.

Don't mean to sound defensive but, to my eye, the car would be reflected further to the left of the window and out of the frame. In any event, I wouldn't have gone to the trouble of trying to create a reflection. Just a fun project for me. Anyone else care to weigh in? I could be dead wrong.

How did you get the shadow under the car, was it from the original or did you add it to the new image?
