because of the extreme backlit harsh lighting, there is too great a dynamic range.
You exposed perfectly. You got it in a spot that has everything exposed generally well.
The detail on the car is muted and hidden in shadow because of the lighting. I think HDR would greatly help the images.
If course using Photoshop's merge and open in camera raw feature. None of the bullshit candy cane HDR

hey roy. long time for me to get back in this forum. took a photography time out. lol.
as for your photos, have you tried shooting them in late afternoon or early in the morning? lighting a bit harsh for car photography in day time. as sir brent said, HDR will help. i think i posted some of my car shows photos here. and to be creative try doing it in night using light painting. i need to try this technique myself.
cheers!
roy

Hmmm.. thanks for the advice... even though.. i think the images are harsh too because of my editting... A lot of contrast and bringing the highlights back to get some sky back in the images....

And... why you were taking a Time-Out Roy? Your images are great. I showed them to some people here and they were impressed about your spider thingies... :p

Why haven't you just use the natural one instead of doing any kind of editing?

Because straight out of camera it's a 14 bit monster with a dynamic range that extends beyond the jpeg preview. Editing is about choosing the data you want, and tossing the data you do not want.

Having such a high bit-depth and dynamic range means you can shift exposure and colour and almost never run into posterization and banding.

How about an evening shoot with a couple of strobes? As for editing these maybe try dodging the body by about 1/2 stop?
