I always underexpose, almost everything I shoot, but just a tad in most cases, some cases I do it alot, this shot it was much darker then the images shows, as the sun was headed down and it was cloudy...

I love classic cars... seriously I do. I would have liked this shot better if the hood were down. There isn't anything pretty about the underside of a car hood. If I can't see the engine then I don't want the hood up. I like the angle, just would be better if I could see the top of the hood and not the underside.

I actually don't mind the under exposure... it feels moody and I like it....despite "grey walls".

Yes, you do seem to underexpose. I've seen three of your car images today, all very much underexposed and detail-free on the "interesting" parts of the cars. The thing is this: we were not there; the excitement, the beauty of a classic car must be visually SHOWN to the viewers of the photos; there's no way to convey the excitement and beauty that you yourself experienced unless your photos literally SHOW the cars--clearly. Being overwhelmed by the "scene" or by "the subject" while in its presence, and failing to expose properly, is a huge pitfall.

I didn't like that hood up either, we were at a balloon glow that had a small car show in the grass, and that's how the 58 was sitting.
