Shot in RAW and applied very minor adjustments. Just want some hints, tips, and criticism on anything and everything you see that you would do differently. Including crop choice, angle shot, settings (100 iso, 1/200, F/4.3), etc. Thanks!

i like the second one best. 1 is good as well, but the background is less distracting in 2.

I like #2, perhaps drop down a little further so you capture more of the cars lines and less background noise/distractions through the windows. Also both seem really dark, up your exposure some.

Hopefully you don't mind, but I did a quick edit of number 2. I feel like it's a great shot just needs some more "pop" if you will.

I don't mind at all. Actually, I appreciate it. I'm no CS4 master, and just started using lightroom 2. I need to make a site or e-mail people RAW photos for better editing to help me out!

Pm me you're email and I can send you the psd with my layers on it, so you can kind of see what I did to it.

Beautiful car, but the images appear to be at least 1-2 stops underexposed.

Don't hang yourself with an "Auto" mode if you want to get the exposure right on. Why?

As everyone above said, the shots are a bit dark. But I like the composition.
