Red face Senior Project: Commercial Photography (Help!)

Hey guys, I've been posting up on a lot of forums recently about my high school senior project. I've been studying commercial photography the whole year and have taken what I've learned to create ads for a small bodyshop in Washington called 360 Autobody. They've been lacking in adverts and any real publicity so I offered to make ads for them, free of charge, as a part of my project!

My project requires evaluation forms to be completed by outside individuals, so that's why I'm here to ask you guys for your feedback.

If you guys are interested in helping me out, let me know by sending me a PM with your email address and on May 13th I will send you an evaluation form along with the ads that I have created. The forms are very brief (less than 3 minutes!) and all you have to do is email it back!

Thanks guys, and as always, sneak peak!

Too much light on the dudes right side of the face in the first picture. Because you have the light source on his right side.

AHHH I hate that people notice that...it wasn't until I went back home and looked at it that I realized it was way over exposed. I tried burning and everything but nothing will bring back the detail in it. I guess this shows I'm still learning

Try adding a new layer, then change the layer properties to Soft Light. Then paint with black over the face. I painted over the area once, merged the image, then did it again and reduced the opacity of the second layer. Then flattened.

2nd picture.

In the future, you need light in front of the car as well. You want to elluminate the car as much as possible with soft light and eliminate shadows from every angle of a car.

Alright guys, save the comments for the evaluation forms! I haven't received any emails in my inbox so I guess no one wants to help out?
