    Looks like a pretty good lunch break project! The thing that stands out at me most is the perspective....try turning on the grid under the environment properties. This will help you get the correct amount of "twist" on the camera as well as a pretty good attempt at the focal length of the camera.

    Also, small detail....looks like you forgot to unhide the left rear taillight lens

    I hope this is helpful!

    Cool Image....Cool car!

    I think the backplate could use some sharpness or the car could use some some subtle blur...and also more temperature, for that gorgeous plate you'd think the car should have more color at least in the reflection.

    Hope it helped!

    Cheers,

    The problem with the backplate is it distracts form the car itself, the part of the image where the car is situated is in shade.

    Here are a few updates to the image from today-- added some more color in environment and reflections, worked on perspective and did some more stylized images.

    Hey chageman, like the first image of your last series. Much, much better...given the car it slightly positioned in the shadow (as jlowap very aptly pointed out), I'd fire up those taillights to give the attention the car needs. (When in shadows, taillights stand out a lot).

    Anyways, just a suggestion, hope it helps!

    Looks great. I did notice the shadows under the car in the sunset series is in the wrong direction - as though the sunset was to the left instead of the right.
