I'm posting my Car pics after must hesitation. I'm dumbstruck after seeing the quality of images here! I'm posting to get suggestions and improve. Please delete the photos if necessary.

Image 1: 2006. Car after Service @ Ford. I liked the angle. Sorry for the cluttered background and the broken Number Plate.

Image 2: 2007. @ ECR, Chennai. Liked the sea background. Worn out Tyres looked horrible:(

Image 3: 2008. @ ECR, Chennai. Against the Sun Set.

Default Before and After

Was practicing some post-processing on my car's pics. A rather crude attempt, but nevertheless.

AFTER

Edit:
Riju, just the reflections from the bonnet region alone, or even from the windscreen and glasses?

Benny the shade from the trees on the car is quite distracting. Get rid of them..

This is one of my best shots of GV. Here the trees and muddy water are not a distraction because they are one of the main objects along with the dirty GV.

Cyrus, you need to get up close to shoot them well. Check senindra's first image few posts back, that practically jumps out of the frame. Also it is important not to cut parts of car unless it is carefully planned. Example, your last shot, you are up close, but wrong angle and part of it is cut off.

Getting closer helps...

Will keep that in mind. Also, i have cut off some part of the Last pic as there was a Light pole in the frame.

Still playing around with my new camera so these pics are nothing great. These are shot in full auto mode as I'm still not sure about the manual settings. These are with no post processing.
