So many images of cars that I see show every nut & bolt & look as if they should have "For Sale" printed on them? So I'm suggesting that a "Beauty Shot" that allows the viewer to use a little imagination can add some romance to your daily ride too.

Even an econobox can look interesting in the right light, no?

Composition and car are nice and make me want to buy your sexy econobox :) Most car ads are shot on gleaming wet pavement and then PS to make the chrome shine. Back fender brightness could be toned down, but your selection of location and purple sky work well.

Thanks for the comments, Lynn!
Re: Back fender brightness could be toned down, Do you mean the fender flare over the tire? I thought about that, but it's a natural reflection so I left it alone.
Re: make me want to buy your sexy econobox :) :D It's kind of fun to drive, but I got better gas mileage with my Malibu, & it ain't no Mopar! ;)

The flare is over the tire. Seemed like the article/tutorial I read did some re-work of these areas. Just draws me eye too much there. Mileage... gone are the days when we didn't have to stress about that. Love my car, not its mileage :(

nice composition and exposure, i personally like the slight lens flare that the headlight gives off. I wish that the reflection of the sun wasnt reflecting on the side of the car. If it wasnt for the slightly noticable buildings in the back this would be a perfect shot.

Re: "I wish that the reflection of the sun wasnt reflecting on the side of the car." Actually, the sun was down at the time, so I wonder where you're seeing that?

Re: "If it wasnt for the slightly noticable buildings in the back..." There are buildings back there & I would agree with you, except that they're so dark that I wouldn't expect you to notice them, so I wonder if maybe the calibration of your monitor might have slipped & what you're seeing is brighter than what I'm seeing?
Or maybe the color management of your browser has changed during an upgrade?

Thanks for the comments, though. I'm glad that you mostly liked the image.
