Very interesting "wet" floor material and the effect of DOF.
Not so clearly that means "shadow capture" and "the imposters reflection".
What is the render time?

Shadow capture - the process of creating illusory shadows over the hdr backdrop to give the impression that it has real geometry.
The imposters reflection - the process of creating an illusory reflection on a surface in the hdr backdrop that has not geometry.
Render time was about two hours because of using DOF and soft shadows.

Thanks, I understand.

I begin to realise that not only light and shadows are important to make an object in an HDRI backdrop appear to be standing on the floor (or on any surface) that actually doesn't exist, but reflection also aid to create that illusion.
