3D Mountain bike effect with Adobe Photoshop.

I really like Mountain biking, mainly watching of course. It’s one of the greatest sports brought to us in the last decade.
I’ve made lots of 3D effect photos for people but they have not always been in this style. I wanted to try something different and maybe include my favourite sport into the bargain.
I have seen others try this method but most don’t really capture the idea of a 3D popup style effect. So here’s my attempt and it turned out a little more difficult than first imagined. Something I missed with this 3D Mountain bike effect was perhaps to include a little shading on the photo itself. By that I mean giving it some depth by adding shade to the border as it moves into the background. Definitely something I will add next time. I would also like to find a photo with the bikers head slightly more prominent so I can give that the same treatment too.

This is the original photo that was used.
