make sure your camera settings are exact from whatever made that image, to me that looks like 16- 24mm lensing .

Start with your verticals floor planes then match up the camera

Does that work? what about the vanishing lines, do I need to use them?

If it helps, i sometimes paint them in in photoshop. I also expand the canvas so i can see the vanishing points so i can roughly match it with big boxes. Also make sure you undistort the image and rotate it in such a way that all vertical lines are vertical.

Check this, i cheated a bit in the edit but it shows my point.

Check this:


Find volume's to match your camera. Ie, the cylinder in the middle. Since there is no straight line in the picture use the horizon and the seam in the concrete to the left to establish a base ground plane.
Maybe make a giant infinite plane match it with the lines coming towards you.
