Nice composition and lighting.
Assuming you'd like some critique... more sense of movement/blurring in the car and the girl could work well. Which might mean using a much slower shutter speed, which in turn means use of a tripod or monopod - unless you have a really steady hand (which is possible at the wider end of the lens).
Cheers -- Steve.

All the action is on the right hand side of the photo yet I find myself wandering down the street to the left and trying to work out what is going on there. It is probably just me as I am not particularly into cars and I wasn't immediately drawn to it. What you could do to focus more on the girl and the car is to compose the pic with less space down the left hand side - see mod where I have cropped down the left. I also used a curves adjustment to lighten the car a little so it pulls the eye.

Best wishes

Catherine

I would also like to see the photograph cropped from the top to just above the lady's head. The street light above the car is drawing my view upwards and not to the car or the lady. I also agree with Catherine about the left hand cropping.

I think both of you are right regarding the crops to the LHS and the top.
I've uploaded a mod of CathR's mod. in which I've cropped the top to remove the streetlight and cloned out a lit window which took it's place as the distraction.
I applied "auto tune" which adjusted the colour and finally de-noised it using "Noiseware Community Edition." Everything else was done in CS5.
Regards,
Bren.
