Lightbulb Wallpaper worthy pic of my e92 335i?

I take a lot of pictures of my 2010 335i Monaco Blue 6 Speed, but i'm in love with this picture. What Do you think?

IMO this pic would be wallpaper worthy if for example you had a different bumper or a lip but nevertheless Monaco is a great color! btw what AE's are you running?
thanks!

needs a bit of post-processing IMO. Use adobe lightroom to bring out the shaddows and suppress the lights. It will also enhance the details and kill the noise while giving you richer sky and colors.

It's def a cool shot, but it needs some photoshop work to be wallpaper worth IMO.

Hard question to answer, everyone has different expectations for a wallpaper.

I know, I need a new bumper! Not sure yet if I like the m stripes... The AEs are just some $60 ones off eBay, but they are 40w

I used photoshop a little and messed with the curves. I just got Lightroom and I'm still learning it.

This picture shows the gloss of the color and the monaco blue better. I just got lightroom, and i'm still working on figuring it out

Played with lightroom a little

I put it in lightroom and tried to make it a little better. Reduced the noise, and played with split toning. I'm not thrilled with it, but i'm learning.

Tried a bit... difficult pic to edit as there are lots of over-exposed and under-exposed elements. Colors are bleak and the fact that pic is not in raw doesn't help... You have a great car, man, it deserves a nice DSLR or mirror-less cam to go along

Wallpaper photo should really be in landscape, not portrait. Also, try using multiple flashes and shoot in the golden hours to get deep rich colors with a good balance of lights and dark's. An ND grad filter is great for keeping skies from blowing out too. Keep an eye on the elements behind the car as well and the overall composition. Keep up the good work.
