Nothing wrong with this shot as a first time dude, you did great :-)

A couple of things to think about for next time.

It looks like the boom you're using isn't quite long enough, so choose more of a front or rear angle next time, it'll give you that width you're missing here.

Also, try to put the vehicle closer to the center of the frame like you did here, with just a little more space in front. This will keep the distortion down, and you can crop it for artistic integrity later.

Make sure to bring your circular polarizer and try to make that front windshield look less like fog, and more like reflection.

The opposite needs to be done for the side, little to no reflection at all. You have done well here with this!

Lastly, give it some spice, this processing is a bit flat, give it some interesting coloration, and hopefully a bit more interesting background.

Do work son!

I like that one, interesting vantage point, good light balance, looks natural.

Thanks for that - I do have another 5 ft section that I can attach to my boom that I'll try.

I was out again last week to try another filter and some longer exposures.

I had a request to shoot someone's car and they had asked for this kind of shot, so I gave it a go.
