    i like it off balance, i think it works well with the curvature of the light pattern from the headlights.

    did you mean to spill water or is that just tar on the driveway? either way i think it helps add something again playing on the pattern of the headlights.

    a little dark. A longer exposure with the headlights off/fogs on would have looked pretty good.



    also the horizon

    Next time, turn the headlight of the car off and use just the amber glow of the parking lights.

    1. Turn off headlights, fogs only.
    2. Cleaner pavement, unless that's tar, in which case you should readjust your angle to get it out of the shot.
    3. Remove lighting that distracts from the car. Here's a REALLY quick edit I did to show you what I think would have looked better as far as lighting.

    and to add... the lighting and WB can be helped in PP

    a little shadow highlight, and a blue filter will help some. Or just fix it if you shot in RAW

    As far as positioning, I think it'd look better with the wheels turned the other way. The way it is now looks awkward, since the car looks like it's going into the curb.

    Move the car forward to get better seperation. I'm not sure what the subject is suppose to be...the car or the house.

    Add some fill light to the side of the car.

    PS out the nasty crack/fill in the road.

    Straighten the horizon

    Less road more car.

    get rid of the angle.

    Longer exposure

    Kill the headlights if they dont work with the longer exposure.
