    Here are some shot's of my car, my car is so dark it seems hard to take good shot's of it. I also have a quetion about HDR, is it the same if you take 1 pic, put it into lightroom and change the exposure's. I know with HDR work, you are suppose to have several different exposures. The last pic was one of my first HDR edits.

    I'm in agreement with jw. The first one is great. although the last pic isn't bad I don't see any HDR lending to the overall image. Honestly if you wouldn't have told us it was HDR I never would have known. Which is sometimes a good thing, but I think this image could have been obtained through a single exposure. But I do like the first one. Was the entire image lighted by your dome light alone?

    I like number 2 a lot. and I think I would like 3 more if the car was turned just a little more so you could see the front wheel better. I know very little about car photography so take these as just opinions!

    Wow, these are great. I love the midnight feeling of lights shining down on the car in the second pic. Great pics!

    Yea I took the shot in my garage, and the only light was from the interior lights. I dont really know how people get crazy HDR images. the one I did just kinda "amped" the colors up a lot. HDR with cars, kinda makes the car look fake. I know I need to practice doing good HDR work. THANKS

    Thanks :hug::

    I like #2 also, maybe a tighter crop? What lens did you use?

    Don't think I've ever heard someone say my car was "cute" but thanks for the complement.

    I am a total noon and don't even own a photo shop app but I think your use of HDR is awesome and without looking for the HDR I didn't notice it was photo shop... gj
