I have this great place near my house, totally empty ground. The only problem is the Loose sand that floats about.

Shot today at NICE corridor. Sky was good. Road curve looks nice. One of those very few shots from 257 clicks. Click on image to see this better.

Big thanks to Jaggu for driving my car and Viddy to shove me inside his Lancer's boot.

Awesome pic. The weather was pretty good today and did not play spoilsport.

Only thing we need a way to keep the boot lid open and not keep falling on your head. lol.

Man that Chevy looks as shiny in real life as in the pic. I love the new wheels.

Rudra sir,

WOW! I don't have any other words, honestly! That's one of the best photographs of a car I have ever seen. Ever! Thank you.

@Rudra
Wow! Awesome action! I love the way the road curves away! And brilliant optra you got there! I see a bit of halo in the horizon, is it intentional?
I would love to see your exif on this one.
Regards,
TG.

Mukul, this is the EXIF: Speed - 1/40. f stop - 11. ISO - 100. Lens - 20mm.

Roughly you can say this is around 40% cropped image. Ideal lens for full frame would be 35 - 40 mm kind of focal length.

This original RAW image processed thrice as I cannot go for exposure bracketing. One processed for overall tone. Another one for the sky and third one is for the headlamp.

Interesting to notice here that all possible tones came from one single exposure.

clevermax, I generally go with Canon's DPP. But that for those three different process. Major work is on Photoshop.

After an overworked week, a drive and some good photography is just wht you need to relax those nerves.

Number plates are PS'ed,hence not masking.

Sid, I'm no pro like the rest of the guys here, but I feel you really need to improve the composition of the photos. Unless you are trying to document a certain aspect of the car or trying to focus on something specific, get the whole car in the frame.

Secondly, low light conditions aren't the easiest to take great photos in. Try taking some photos in the daylight first.

Thirdly, when taking photos of a car it's better to be further away and zoom in, instead of physically moving closer. Actually moving closer distorts the car and messes with the proportions.

Just my two cents

I'll leave the rest to the pros.
