    I need some help with reducing the bright light behind the subject in this picture. It would be nice if it can be accomplished by changing the exposure rather than to Photoshop.
    But any help (Photoshop or exposure adjustment) would be appreciated.:(
    Feel free to edit the picture!

    Over cast days are real difficult to overcome without over exposing the sky.

    Just a guess since I dont have one yet, but how about trying a graduated ND filter? Even though that means retaking the shot.

    Oh one other suggestion. Maybe re composing the shot to where the car is quartered on the roadway with the trees as the background to eliminate the sky, but the road is still there to add to the theme.

    That's about all I could do with it.

    Thanks Knawx, citjet and Peter42 for you comments and help!
    citjet, as you mentioned I will try the ND filter and see how that comes out.

    Here's a quick edit. I tried mirroring one side of the car & warmed up the picture a little. ;)

    everything would be overexposed when ur taking photos of black car. depends on where you meter.
    use a flash and polarizer. if you dont have either, take a photo of a nice sky and put it in that photo.

    thats what i would do if it's my shot. well depending on what ur goal is.
