the picture became grainy the way I wanted it in the front of the car, so I had to settle for a little less, but here I tried

Not everybody invests time or energy in p/shop or lightroom. But I agree, sometimes E90post baffles me.

Your issue is just that the image was underexposed. Even with a RAW file you can always darken shadows and fix small areas of blown highlights, but you cannot always add detail to underexposed areas. When I'm dealing with shadows or areas of a scene that are tricky to expose properly I always shoot around half a stop wider than necessary (i.e. overexpose just a bit) and adjust exposure down in lightroom, rather than trying to add detail to underexposed areas. Either that, or bracket my exposures and take one shot with the background properly exposed, and a second with the foreground properly exposed, then stitch them together in post. It looks like you were shooting with a fairly narrow aperture and using ISO to adjust exposure, which is what's giving you the grain. It's a fine balance between shooting wide enough to get good detail, while not going so wide that you lose part of your subject to DOF. If I was shooting a scene like this, I would have used auxiliary lighting. That's really the only way you can properly control exposure and keep your aperture narrow enough for a wide subject like a car #photographerproblems

I really appreciate the tips, I'll try to figure out how to toy with the camera..I'm a super noob, I just borrowed a Nikon D3000 from my sister and 2 lenses (one close up lens and the other was the one it came with) Thanks a lot

hahaha, I'll give it a try. It may be pixilated or grainy due to the quality though

good idea.

if you guys wanna get a more artistic look you can try adding a gradient map in PS and then change the blending mode of the gradient map to something like overlay or soft light. Adjust the fill to get the desired look.

Also if you get the original RAW file you can get better results.

If i had PS at home i'd show an example.
