Hi! Noob here. I really enjoyed this view from the moment I spotted the photo opportunity. I've been starting to experiement with RAW capturing/editing (using ACR).

Taken with my handheld T2i & 40mm Cannon pancake lens.

I struggled with editing it for quite a while, finally landed on desaturating the blue tones in ACR which finally took that blue glaze off of the car. The image is very 'warm', I intended it be that way.

Have I overdone it?

CON: I only got one RAW image and in order for it to be straight I had to compromise some area on the sides of the car (which I do wish were still there)... but it looks much better straightened, imo.

CON #2: The car did not come out as sharp as I would've liked. In retrospect, I wish I would have used a larger aperture. Sharpened in ACR as best I could.

Oh yeah, a picture would be great, huh?

Your blacks arent very deep, consider adding a bit more contrast to give it a bit of pop. You have so many reflections from the dappled light through the foliage that its its difficult to see the lines of the car for the various reflections.

I'm going to revisit that!

I have a circular polarizer ordered (that I've read will help reduce some reflections) since I take a lot of photos of cars. Is there another way to combat reflections when out and about that I might not know about?

Thanks for your time :)

The first step would be to get the vehicle in consistent even light, not dappled that way whatever reflections you get are based on the contours of the car rather than the fact there was a hole in the leaves making one bright spot here and there. The CPL will work on the reflections in the glass but likely wont solve the issues with the paint.
