The background is my computer screen. The street car is a metal toy suspended in front of the screen with fishing line. Positioned carefully until it looked like the street car is actually in the picture. One shot no cut and paste. Only Photoshop was done for the headlight beam and also removing the fishing lines. For a final touch I shone a 60 watt light on the hidden side of the street car so it looks like the lights are on inside. One bonus doing this was the reflection I got on the side of the street car. Its a natural looking one of the car beside and behind it

Very nice effect. Talk about re-inventing the wheel... There you go, thinking outside the box again. Nice job, Robert

Ah, that'ssuch a lovely, even a magical streetcar, reminding me the one taking me to school on which I even had time toread for the exam...Ibelieve it cantakeeach observer to somewhere else.Well, nothing looks out of place in your implementingthe 'real object' intoa two dimensionalrealmlike a job by Pixar: )

Thanks all for your comments. This is a very fun way to get a complete single shot photo of an object while at the same time having it in an appropriate setting. Here is another shot I did for the same challenge. All I had to do was delete the fishing lines.

The trolly was cleverly done resulting in a very pleasing image.

It's a nice change from the clone tool in your favourite PP program, isn't it? I won't do it myself probably, but I like your approach!

Regards,
