18. File > Place Embedded > Select Supercar_Stock_2


19. Duplicate layer > Hide previous layer > Rasterize layer > Rename: BACKGROUND


20. Transform > Move up (set the correct percpective based on the position of the supercar)

See the result…


21. Filter > Blur > Lens Blur


22. Set Radius: 7


23. Clone (remove) the vase (use the Clone Stamp Tool or Patch Tool on a new layer)

The color of the vase clashed with the color of the car. The car is the focal point in the image, anything that impedes that needs to be removed or changed. See the result…


24. Add Exposure Adjustment layer


25. Set +0,70 / 0,0000 / 1,20

The background was too bright, this Exposure layer has corrected that perfectly. See the result…


26. To reduce the effect slightly, make a selection on the Layer mask (use the Gradient Tool or Brush Tool)


27. See the Layer mask

The gradient on our Layer Mask reduces the effect towards the bottom of the background image close to the car whilst the top of the background image remains darker. See the result…


28. Add Hue/Saturation Adjustment layer


29. Set Reds: 0 / -100 / 0


30. Set Yellows: +5 / +10 / 0


31. Set Greens: +70 / -30 / 0


32. Set Cyans: +20 / -50 / 0


33. Set Blues: 0 / -100 / 0


34. Set Magentas: 0 / -100 / 0

The colors of the background image did not match the car. This Hue/Saturation adjustment Layer has corrected that perfectly. The color match between the two images is greatly improved. See the result…


35. Add Black & White Adjustment layer > Set Blending Mode: Soft Light


36. Set Preset: Maximum White

This black & white adjustment layer gives background more contrast better matching the car. See the result…


37. Select 6 layers above the Background Layer


38. Create a new group > Name: BACKGROUND
