I know there are distracting elements in the background. Is it too much

The angle is good but yes, the background is too sharp plus the road sign is what bothers me the most.
The 2nd one has much too much head room.
The foreground grass is also distracting BTW.

Grass doesn't frustrate me as much as the sign/poles.

Slight curve adjust and <1min. clone/heal job. The image could look nice, but it may take some time in post.
1st one's comp bothers me a little bit. Number 2 is totally workable though.

looks better but still not a fan of the grass. Can you crop it out a bit?

Nice edit. The car pops nicely. It's nice and clean and shines. Tires are black and shiny.

A couple things could be cleaned up: the license plate bolts, the thing hanging from the mirror, the decal on the windshield, and the driver's window is partway down.

Is the picture listing slightly to the left?

Thanks for sharing.

Image editing OK, encouraged, and expected. Thank you for helping me learn!

Good eye. Car was practically brand new so I had to take shots of it in this condition as it will never be like that again.

My mistake for leaving sun shade down on drivers side. The sticker is emissions sticker so have to leave it on

take that all wheel drive subaru to a nice spot maybe up that mountain in the background and get a nice outdoorsy background to emphisize that your vehicle is a suv.

It has some nice highlights in it. Roll up the window.

Good job, but you missed the Yield sign growing out of the roof. ; )

No i didnt :) that would have trippled my editing time to 3 minutes...

Thanks for the compliments, everyone.

The second image has lots of potential.
