    how about blurring the background vegetation only? leave the car & ground/driveway in focus. for example....

    you can buy better gear but you can't buy a better eye

    There's a saying, esp in post processing.

    "Junk In , Junk Out" there is really so much that u can do to a dead picture. So my advice like all the others out there is to take another picture of your car ( so tell your parents how to take it ) then u can manipulate it.

    Keep shooting.

    Default Try a better angle

    I think the comments made by the rest are quite helpful for 'modifying' the shot that you have already.

    If you (or your parents) are going to re-take the shot, I advise shooting from a slight lower angle with a longer lens, and putting the background further away.

    This helps blurr out the background a bit more, isolating the car and preventing distracting reflections.

    some examples here on my website.

    hope it helps
