Try bringing a graduated filter from the top to keep the exposure of the image correct, the top is just a bit to 'hot' with the light coming from the lights above...

I also think that improving the composition with the cropping tool can help bring out the right areas of the image...

but love a thread like this...

here is a great lightroom car editing video:

Your photo in itself is really good. Perhaps only change a little the tone of light to make it colder and reinforce the focus...

Thanks dude. New set up is a cleaner look, yet the wheels are more aggressive.
Some shitty pics don't know if you can do anything with them

here is a great lightroom car editing video:
Wow at first when you replied I looked at the video for a minute and was intimidated by the length..but I just watched it now I wish there was more to it. That was extremely helpful. Thanks for sharing! I now feel very confident with Lightroom now.

Currently I'm trying to get used to the camera as I'm starting to borrow it more often from my sister, it's a Nikon D3000 with the 18-55mm lens I think I'm really not sure. If you've got any tutorials on basic camera shooting for cars that would be much appreciated. What I've got down so far is: setting it to RAW, a lower ISO setting, and using a tripod. I'm so-so on the aperture..still getting used to that. I've got a ton to learn..but Lightroom I've got it down now thanks!

There is a matching video that talks about the shoot... its focus is purely on how to think about and approach a car photoshoot... you should see it in the related videos link if you watch the vid on youtube.

Glad you found it useful!

Yeah, but where did you get these pictures. When I imported the first one into lightroom, it only lets me zoom in very minimally therefore I cant get it to look as good without getting up close

Ask and you shall receive! for some reason only your photos seem to get pixelated in LR after some edits?
The greener grass in the back is also a nice touch I added

sorry everyone I've been busy lately and have not gotten to everyone's photos. Thank you to all that help contribute to the thread and help others. I'm currently working on a thread for another member on the forum. Here's one of them.
