    I was asked to take some photos of this black Hyundai Genesis, and it was alreade late, but i just got some equipment for flashphotography i ordered so i tought i give it a try. Got one flash with umbrella on a stand, one single flash on a tripod and one reflectorscreen.
    So it was my first time with flash on a car, a black car and in the middle of the night so be gentle :p

    Good job, that sounds like a tricky shoot. IMO I think the 3rd has the most potential if you bring down the exposure on the ground and tall grass to the left

    They are all fine, I'm sure but I have a couple of points.
    Bear in mind you're already experienced at taking photos of vehicles ... this one being not covered in mud is a new avenue ;)

    Number1 has a very green tone and the blue euro bit on the numberplate jumps out at me.

    Number3 Tyres look too bright.

    I like Number5 the best but that blue bit of the numberplate is still annoying.

    Is it one or two different cars? The last one has a different license plate.

    Barbosas the first pic has the plate letters cloned to be fake, I think the last pic has the real plate.

    2 and 5 are winners in my book, which I haven't written, and nobody would read anyway.

    #2 is my favorite. I know nothing about multiple flashes, so I think you did a great job for the first time!!!
