He's gonna' like that one, save for the tightness, windows being down, and the reflections that could have been prevented with a CP (even though you shot the dark side). I didn't realize you had a 200 ƒ2.8, good play sir.

Nice composition! The only thing I think this needs is a polarizer for the windshield and for the window to be rolled up. Otherwise, great work!

Take the burn tool in photoshop, and darken them

Problem solved!

I think this only half solves the problem, because the polarizer will also let the black paint really pop as well, which the burn tool cannot and will not do. Here's what I mean about the black popping out:

Which is really weird, 'cause it's not soft anywhere. It looks like a double exposure, but you don't do stuff like that, so what gives?

If you look closely, it does soften up a little near the rear quarter panel of the car

IMO i think it would be better if those lights in the back werent there, over exposed and just the lightning. and if you had a couple of fill in flashes on your car to make it stand out better

I actually like the composition of this photo and see what you were trying to capture here. The only thing that bothers me is the background is a little too bright but still looks good, but the front of the car is too dark as the front seems to just turn into ground.

I don't mind the background lights so much, but the front of the car is very dark. This looks like it could be a good HDR candidate. Composition is spot-on though!

Thanks for the input guys. I knew the lights in the back would be blown in order to get the amount of light I needed, this pic was taken in complete darkness. I guess it is the front that bothers me as well, but I did the best I could with what I had, should have done an HDR.

I'm so scared of over-contrasting/over-saturating. Edit looks great Armin.

Don't be afraid, my friend. The key is making sure that you don't lose details with saturation and contrast. If you increase the saturation or contrast so much that you start to lose lines, curves, or edges on a car, then you know you've gone too far.

I like the tones quite a bit Probably want to chop out the powerlines in the background, but they're far away so that's a very nitpicky thing. I would also probably want to see more of the road behind the car to add some depth to it, kinda like this:
