Here is a shot of my dirty Vibe at sunset. Taken with two GND's stacked, upside down. Yea I know the dark line at the horizon but I kind of like the colors.

Pretty nice! I'd like it a lot more if the car was at the left leading into the sunset at the right.

Yeah, that looks real well. I would have placed the car a bit more on the road if it isn't dangerous, cars on grass just doesn't look right.

But you nailed it man.

Thanks! And very interesting. For some reason I never thought to take any shots from the other side of the car. I wonder why? Maybe I was too hung up on the white car being underneath the larger dark cloud mass above it and I did not want to break that symmetry. Still I forgot rule #1. Move Your Feet! I will try and do better to remember that next time.

Thanks! I probably could have it on the road there as it is a sparsely traveled country road, but just my presence out there have all the locals driving by and asking if I am having car troubles. No sense in really upsetting them by parking on their local road and disturbing them even more.

Good thought. But don't fall into the trap that there's only one shot to "see" & think you're done when you take it.
