    Has certainly bought the colour up well.
    Trying to be helpful here, not critical. As a professional photographer and judge of photo competitions I offer the following.
    Suggestions: The interior lighting is too strong, use shorter exposure.
    Background lighting disturbingly uneven and distracting caused by interior lighting being more powerful than flash illumination when it should be the other way around.
    Use off camera flash from all angles, with camera on tripod and shutter locked open on B setting walk around and even behind car setting off flash, flash not pointed at camera of course. For best effect flash to car distance should be about the same for each flash, not too close, about 3 to 4 meters from car except for the behind car ones where the car should mask the flash from the camera.

    Photography and Pugs what a combination.

    Another great photography idea is to shoot at dusk. ie.within half an hour after sunset. Set the camera to slow-sync flash. This helps to control contrast and shows colour in the sky.

    All good advice Paul... I'll have fun trying that!

    That red certainly stands out. Looks good.

    How long was the exposure?
    Take the long way home....

    The eight year old paint really is not that hot anymore!

    Where did you manage to find sugarcane growing in sydney?

    The red is way to pronounced.

    Perhaps too much exposire time?
