Out from the shadows...

Just trying my hand at night photography. A spur of the moment thing after getting home. Only light source was my garage driveway spotlight. I shot it from the inside end of the garage. Obviously not very ideal light. I don't really know what I'm doing either. Comments and critique welcome.

I like the shot. It needs cropping though; about 30% off the top and a little on the right side, just enough to center the car.

I like this shot a great deal, as well. A clever idea that's well executed, although I agree with ajuett's suggestion for some cropping.

I hope you won't mind if I try the same thing with my car - you've come up with a excellent way to generate a dramatic car shot with the convenience of your own garage.

I had cropped it the way it was to keep the top part of my carport in the shot. I thought it made it less mundane than just fading to black. I think cropping the right side a bit would work. Thanks for the suggestions.
