Hi, Yes, that's what I guessed, but wanted to make sure.

I would select the car, jump a copy, then use Edit>Perspective warp.

Gooie dag!

I do not understand what you mean by the two cars. Do you mean a front view and a side view that you would individually distort to simulate a shadow?

I see a background, hidden, a smart object on top with the city,  then an empty layer, hidden, and copy of the car with a mask.

Basically, layers are like transparent sheets on which you can paint. If there is one on top, it hides what is below.

To reveal what is hidden, one can use a layer mask as you did on the achtergrond Kopie. Hide shows, black hides.

Did you try to create a new-empty- layer, then ctrl+t? It would not work, as there would be nothing to transform.

You'd need to "jump" a selected area, with CTRL+J, then Transform it, or to drag a layer on the new layer icon, to copy it, then transform and mask it.

 

I notice also that the car's photo has been taken indoors, you do see the lights reflexion. You might want to clone/patch them out using a "darken" blending mode.

Ah, I see that you are the same person that asked about the shadows... Do you want to merge the discussions?

I think he wants to create a mirrored reflection on the ground. 

@johannes999 : there are tutorials on the web. Not easy to create a physically correct reflection.

Hi!
Alt+click the line between the levels adjustment layer and the layer you want to restrict it to.
