    Me thinks the shadow areas are dark and the sky is over exposed. Melvin should meter for the sky and then use fill flash to highlight the dark shadows.

    PP out the lamp post, bollards, etc.

    Next time can try standing further away and using a long lens to zoom in. Cars tend to look a bit more "fierce" that way.

    And try HDR also?

    point the camera to the sky and use your exposure lock button. This way, the camera will auto calculate and lock the exposure for the sky

    my personal habit is to program tht button to do exposure lock only

    the main subject isn't the sky. your metering is fine. why would you meter to the sky and have the car underexposed ? in this situation, the sensor has only so much dynamic range for one or the other to be exposed correctly.

    And you will get a nicely exposed sky to show a silhouette? With the clutter background, u will just see a black mass at the bottom of the photo.

    thats what i thought might happen with the method i know.... but redname seems to be talking abt a technique that can allow for BOTH sky and car to be exposed properly?

    1. i was told tht all DSLR have exposure lock function, u might need to look at ur manual for the button. sorry can't help u here as i'm on nikon.

    2. actually i was answering ur question abt metering directly. i haven't mention abt fill flash

    Some pictures are too soft but still nice. Try to use some fill flash or HDR to get the sky and the car exposure right. Nice try.

    random, watch out for lamp post sticking out of your car, DI them away if possible, or blur them out

    Watch your focusing and select a better background to best suit the orange Tuscani.
    Pick up some Photoshop skills, it can help to polish and clean up your shots a bit.
