One way is using the lighting effects filter in Photoshop.

The web is full of "Photoshop lighting effects" tutorials.

This is often referred to as the "out of bounds" effect. Worth1000.com has two tutorials on the subject. We have a thread here where ByRo was showing us how to do the effect, but I haven't located it yet -- I'll post if I find it. The Worth1000 tutorial should get you going. Their second tutorial shows how to place the shadows correctly -- but first I think you need to just learn how to the effect, and THEN you can practice making it more perfect.

Are you participating in the Worth1000 contest?

CJ, I don't think I've ever posted any tips for this (nice to be remembered though ).
Maybe you're thinking of Danny's thread here, where he posted 3 tutorial links (including the worth100 link). I updated the link to "PixelAddiction" which is where you'll find a very interesting walk-through.

Well, as for some tips....
1) Take time to find a good subject, not every photo is going to lend itself well to the technique;
2) Think it through first. These things usually end up taking a lot of time - so single out just one good idea instead of trying a bit of everything;
3) Use all the hints possible for the viewer to understand what's going on - perspective, saturation, shadows, blurring etc.....
4) Be your own nitpicker. If you get anything wrong in the 2D/3D/frame physics the viewer will perceive this and you will immediately lose the effect.
5) and most important...have fun!!

Rô, thanks for finding that! What I am especially remembering is YOUR rendition of "George's Hummingbird" using that technique -- which inspired a number of us to give it a try.

Your hummer with out-of-bounds (or "border breakout") technique:

Thanks for your updated link and especially your added tips, Rô, -- they will help us all!

Is this what you mean? You may need to enlarge the canvas area of your graphic to do this.

Layer 1 Extracted the subject from the background

Layer 2 Add red Background and Frame. Center of Frame is transparent so you can see the car on the layer below.

Layer 3. Use the marquee tool to copy the projection portion of the car, add shadow if appropriate.

View all three layers together

Very nice manipulations, swampy.
I especially liked the screen shot - gave me an idea for doing one with something coming out of a monitor, instead of a photo.

This is a link to a fascinating pavement illusionist, not entirely on topic though
