    Im new to all of the this but was okay in photoshop. They told me lightroom was the way to go so after a few youtube tutorials and messing around I have this photo. Im going for dramatic looks without HDR (dont like it) look. You guys can be totally honest for Im here to learn from you all. All opinions okay

    Thanks

    The right time of day was chosen which made the lighting fairly effective. The sky colour in the background also works not too badly. The main problem is that the wires and poles are very distracting and make the background much too busy.

    I would take out the wires and poles in postprocessing, selectively brighten the area around the wheels and the lower front of the car and either crop or add a little more interest to the sky.

    Personally, I'd just drive to a more suitable location for an uncluttered b/ground. H

    That is of course, assuming you own the car, but I know that I have shot cars that I don't own.
