Only thing, couldn't figure how to darken the wing mirror and A-pillar area to match the background a bit more...

Thats wicked!

Hows that done?
Select and copy the car paste it onto a black background the duplicate the car layer and flip it then... adjust the opacity/fill?

BTW what the hell is the difference between the opacity and fill they seem to look the same to me [:cool:]

Spot on, but add some blur and gradient to your opacity to make it look more real. I think the difference is that the opacity is how much of the background it will let through, this is great to use as it will allow you to change the background color after the picture is done if you would like to adjust it, like this:

Your rocki'n! Now time to make the car look 3d, right now as there is no reflection from the left wheels it looks like a 2d car. Try angling the reflection so it looks right in the perspective, then you might need to add some shadow under the car. This is the hard part!

Sound, cheers ill give that all a go tomo and post the pic. That pic im using has a shadow under the car but I went around it so will include that in the next chop.

But what do you mean there is no reflection from the left wheel? that makes no sense to me what so ever.

Right now you can see the two right wheels of the car, as the left wheels are not visible (as you have cut their shadows away) it makes the car look "flat". If you include them in your next chop (as you said) it will look good!

Here is one I have been working on this evening. Not a golf, sorry. This is a job for a trucking company. Still some work left on the windows and the reflection.

I see what you mean now, I thought you were talking about the back wheel as thats the left on out of the two [:$]

Another quickie before I got peed off.

What I should have done is made that laughable shadow a new layer which I forgot to do so thats why the front tyre doesnt look right, aslo I reckon if I had copied the floor around the car from the original I might of been able to make it look abit better.
