Hey guys, just wanted some opinion on which one is better. Personally I'd go more for the 2nd one.

Or if there's any tips on how to make the photo better. Thanks in advance!

I like #1 better, the light leak/lens flare created in photoshop (or other processing equivalent) looks more natural with keeping the building on the left dark and contrasty verses #2 being washed out and brown.

BUT i actually like the un-edited one the best, just clone out a couple of reflections throw a little bit of punch into the white and clone out the highlight in the passenger (left of car) tailight.

Thanks for the constructive words, will keep them in mind.

Actually this photo is supposed to advertise the rims on it. Hope you guys can tell me if it does the job.

If this is to show off the wheels, then what I would do is brighten up the front wheel alot more.. Maybe try and sharpen the image a little more too? Appears a tad soft. I ilke the grungy feel though!

It doesn't for me. Both should be bigger & have better highlights, & putting them off to the side of the frame keeps attention away from them.

Great shots, I love the A5! Thinking of getting one myself later on this year.
I like the first one, but bump up the exposure a little and contrast and make it look more “poping”... I don’t like overedited photos..

Okay, will crop the photo a bit.

I would also try to make the car stand out more from the image, and lighten the wheels ... a few adjustment layers for levels, b&w layer, softlight layer and some cloning ... and I end up here :

If you don't mind me posting it here ... just let me know if you would prefer I remove the edited photo again, no problem, my only intention was to show how I would edit this shot.

However if you are showcasing the wheels this angle and crop doesn't to the trick, sorry, you need to put more focus on the wheels ... zoom in on them.

Hard part is client also wants to focus on the car and also on background. Agree maybe a little too much of background. And they also require "creative" outcomes with the photos. not natural looking one.

No worries, thanks for the effort!

1. Focus on the car.
2. Focus on the background.
3. Be "creative".
4. Oh, BTW, Make the wheels look great because that's what I'm selling.

Don't you love it?
I've said it before, "Clients, what do they know?" ;) I try to explain the best way to get what they say that they need, but they don't always listen because they have this vague fantasy of what would be "REALLY COOL!".

Next time I suggest that you shoot it their way, & then shoot it the way that you think it should be, & let them decide after.
