Please also list all photo info if possible.

A lot of your photos, the sky is always blown out. I know its hard to get the right exposure on a black car. Have you considered doing 2 exposures and stitching them together in order to bring some detail and color out of the sky?

Yes, thanks for the advise. I have already started taking two or more exposure shots. Unfortunately I have not pulled the trigger on LR/PS subscription yet. I have not started any PP, just shooting in RAW for editing later. I have been trying to take better shots before stepping to the next stage. All my photos are not edited yet. I know they are not "up to par" with the awesome work you guys post on here, but I think my shots have some potential once I get into PP. It's all a learning process and I'm at the early stages still.

A few more pictures today Finally having some fun with this again, I took your tips from yesterday, and played around with the exposure ALOT today, also took a few night pictures.

I have found a new problem though, I seem to have difficulty getting clear pictures, even while on a tripod :/
As always, all feedback is good feedback! I want to learn. Here are the pics:

If thats the case then theyre not bad at all. I thought they were just subtle edits and you were focusing on the car. You may not need to blend more than 1 shot once you start editing. Some of that can be helped with adjustment brushes and things.

combined multiple exposures for this, any tips on the blending? I think I wasn't patient enough with the brushing perhaps?

I would tone this down. It's coming off a little strong and 'over processed' to me.

I like this a lot. I think it could be toned back just a little but not much. Get your whites right and then maybe slight adjustments and it would be gold.

This however isnt enough for me. The sky is too white. I would have brought it somewhere near like 1/200ish.

That being said, I like darker edits. I know how you edit though so I see that its your style.

yeah it's just too unnatural looking if the brightness of the lower half of the shot maybe was lower or vice versa it would be a bit better i think. Also the blues are just too overdone compared to the rest of the shot, I can also see where you brushed around the trees.

Yeah I always just underexposed the poo out of my car and just bring it up in post. Our sensors are beast though in shadow recovery.
