The CEO of our company dropped me off his car when he left for a flight so I decided to wash her up and take a few, hope you enjoy!

C&C always welcome, but please, don't just tell me what i did wrong, tell me how i can make it better. Thanks.

Okay, for a start, you parked half on a drain and I really would have prefered it if the cars was parked outside instead of in the building.

Also, the white balance seems slightly off on the first - due to flash?

oh, and get the roof down!

Thanks for the input, since i don't have any triggers, i had to use my flash on camera so they aren't perfect and im still working on mastering white balance.

im still working on mastering white balance.

In a shot like this, the 'right' WB is whatever you think looks good, assuming a calibrated system.
Other than that, I'd have used a tripod & taken a 2nd darker exposure of the sky to blend in.

Thats what i did in this shot but im not very pleased with how it came out, my blending skills have much to be improved upon and the car is just a tad underexposed on my monitor. I tried to do an HDR but it just wasnt working out, i couldnt even take 3 exposures that aligned perfectly even with a tripod and release cable...would it be easier to open the same file 3 times in RAW and save 3 diff exposures then merge to HDR? Sorry for all the whining but i would love to get into photography more and learn as much as i can. Thanks guys.
