Welcome to Retouch Pro, Edelstoff!

A very good composit. Love the classic car. I do have one nit to pick though. The shadow under the car and the reflection. To me the gap between the two is not realistic. Perhaps extending the shadow to meet the reflection would appease my eye.

Hi E

yeah and the building would not show in the reflection of the car - its impossible
The car is blocking it.

i would also remove the red in the tires it doesnt match the overall colour.

Nice collage The only thing I would add is the lighting on the car doesn't seem to match the lighting in the rest of the image, the car seems too dark. To me the source of light for the image would indicate it was coming from the right side at a high angle based on the shadows coming off the columns on the building.

Very nice concept!

Normae, Welcome to RTP!

Wow, that is a tall order. To post a tutorial of the steps taken to achieve this effect would take pages and pages and, if you are a beginner, you'd be lost at about step 3. I suggest you start simple by working on compositing 2 simple images rather than something like Ed's 4 image composite. Search the tutorials here for terms like compositing, extracting background etc. and learn the terms and steps to do an easy graphic.
