Default noob car pic

Took this with no clue that there would be any glare...



After a bit of editing, it came out as this:



Better? Worse? Composition and editing advice appreciated!

Welcome to the forum! Personally, I think the flare would warrent a re-shoot. I think without the flare and a slightly better angle, you could make an interesting pic out of this. Keep it up, car photography is challenging and fun!

Yeah, I kinda liked the glare and went with it. Aiming for a retro, washed out sort of look with the editing...

I don't like the messy papers sticking out of the door or the view looking out the window.

I'd say reshoot that nice car

Just a noob here but the papers are a bit bothersome especially since they could be removed. The haze is very distracting to.

I would also go the re-shoot route.

It's a TT... Might as well throw in another pic...



Yeah, left the papers because I couldn't be bothered to move them. I'm still in the noobstage of taking random shots to get the hang of things. When I feel like I'm getting the hang of it, I'll clean things up and plan out some shots....

I thought the 4 rings on the steering wheel would have given the Audi part away....

Seriously is a nice interior though... I just wish I knew how to photograph it...
