    i am trying to photochop my car into the picture (for a class assignment) but what gives it away is the lighting on the car, especially on the rear window.

    what i have done so far:

    cut car and pasted it into the background (hill picture)

    did a shitty paint behind to create "shadow" (because i didnt do a great job on cutting out the car, too dark under the bumper/tires/etc)



    how can i fix this? (without having to take another pic of my car)
    the sun was behind me for both the pics, the car and the hill :hsugh: :confused:


    should i rotate the car a little bit also?

    what about the scale of the car? does it look right?

    i shot everything in raw. i also need to get rid of that reflection on the drivers side door and the basketball goal reflection too :o


    does it look believable?

    if you wouldn't have said anything, i probably would think it was real...

    just use your burn tool for those areas you'd expect a shadow considering the angle of the sun and you should be good to go.
