Hi, it's nice to see you discovering a detail where the subject, even if partially seen, can be identified. Stingray has a series of nice curves and I am sure you would have more pictures taken. I think that you should have had either gone back a bit, if you were using a prinme lens, or you should had zoomed out so you get in the frame the beginning of the lower part of the air entrance that cools the brakes, a classic feature of Stingray. Second could be the the use of a flash away of the body, facing the letters just to make the Stingray name shine. I think by the reflection on the wheel, you were shooting on a cloudy day, not much direct light on its own.

Thanks for your lengthy critique, although none was asked for.
While I agree that the letters could have been a bit brighter with use of OCF or a reflector (or altered in post), I purposely composed the shot so that the upper left and lower right are connected with an ingress and egress from the body lines of the 'vette, that was my vision.
