Now copy selection (CTRL + C) and paste it back (CTRL + V). This will copy the selection onto a new layer. Call it "back". Now use Transform tool (CTRL + T) and scale this layer.

Now we have to fix transition between these two layers. First merge down these two layers using CTRL + E. Now zoom in and select Healing brush tool and choose brush with smooth edges. Correct errors on these two layers.
Our picture should look something like this after healing.

Now we have to select only a car. The simplest way to that is with Magic Wand tool (W). Set tolerance to value of 10 (if you want to go faster then select higher value). Click on some part of picture and then hold SHIfT and continue clicking on other areas of picture. Be carefull not to select car.

Now we have to fine tune this selection, mostly on the car itself. So, invert selection (SELECT - INVERSE) then press Q on keyboard to enter quick mask mode. Everything ecxept the car is red. Take a brush and paint red area around the car. You have to be precise not to paint on the car. Paint the shadows also. You can zoom in and this is way the start picture is so large.
When you are finished exit quick mask mode (press Q again). This will left the selection around the car only. Duplicate it to another layer (press CTRL + J on keyboard) and call that layer "front".
Now we have to perform a small trick. Go to Channels palette and create new channel. It's called Alpha1.

Now back to Channels palette, click Alpha1 channel then hold CTRL and click Alpha1 layer. This will make selection. Now click Layers palette, select "black color" layer and make sure that white is background color. Hit DEL on the keyboard.
Now remove selection by pressing CTRL + D.
Go to IMAGE - IMAGE SIZE and select size of picture you want. I entered width of 700 pixels.
And that is it. You can now enter some text and experiment a little bit with this.

Some FAQ's

May I publish your tutorial(s) on my website?

NO - DEFINITELY MAY NOT! I don't mind, of course, any form of back link to Digital Photo News tutorials section, but taking any one of the tutorials whole and supplanting it on your website is theft. If you really like the tutorials and want to advertise them, why not just hyperlink directly to their URL?

Is it possible to submit some of my own tutorials?

Yes! I love to add new and original tutorials to ever-growing database! If you would like to submit a tutorial, fill in the contact form with as much detail as you can manage and we'll get back to you with details. There's no need to stick to a specific format when submitting, as we will do all the boring work for you if needed... and fully credit you as the author on your tutorial pages if your submission is accepted.

Can I request a tutorial?

Of course you can! I make no guarantees i'll be able to get around to your specific tutorial in any given timeframe, but I listen to audience, and if there is demand out there for a guide to a specific technique/effect, I'll be only too glad to offer my assistance. Just ask via the contact form.
