This is a single long exposure shot of my own car.

I think it's cool that you do one shot and no composite and not too much after editing. That being said there is room for improvement. I don't like the angle of the car, but that's personal. Technically the photo has to much noise, the colors are flat, the car has a halo and the focus feels off (nose is sharp, rest is not).

I like the sky and rate it 2 stars and I would love for you to try more, because I think the location, car and the sky will enable you to get more out of a shot!

Thanks Mark. I do agree theres room for improvement and I'll keep on trying for better

So I think this has a lot of potential, but slightly misses the mark. The light streaks, the one just above the horizon on the left, and the one in the middle of the sky, are distracting. I'm also guessing you shot with a wider angle lens, which distorts the car a bit. Not necessarily a bad thing, but from my own experience, stepping back, and getting just a bit higher, often works really well.

The image is noisy, but I think that's fine. I'd probably bring down the shadows in the foreground on the right side, because the detail isn't really needed, and it would mask the noise a bit, but the image as a whole is strong enough that the noise just doesn't matter.

A lot of promise here.

Thanks a lot Dustin. I am using canon 10-18mm for this shot which creates the distortion.

Love this ! ❤️

thanks hemantha
