BridgingAs paulbroad said, the main problem here is the lack of light in the foreground, the only thing really well lit on the car is the license plate. Ideally you want to get a 2nd light source shining onto the car from the right side of the picture, as Paul mentioned a remote flash would be the 'normal' route here but on a compact that's not really possible, so my thought would be to get a second car and point its headlights at your subject, can play with distance, direction, and light strength - half beam, full beam, fog lights - to see which light gives the best look.

Compositionally I feel that the shot could have been improved, that bit of white paint (or whatever it is) on the road at the very bottom of the picture is very distracting, I'd probably have cropped that out so the image starts just below the cars wheels.

Emma T - MustangVery nice image. I would have tried desaturating the reflections on the wheel, find them a little distracting.

Feeding Time

Feeding TimeI like both versions here, V2 is less distracting with the background removed, but it looks strange because the foliage has given the birds a green tint to them. For V2 try modifying the white balance on the layer with the birds on it to try to remove the green tint.
