definitely need to learn that camera, buddy. longer shutter settings and a lower ISO will help to improve your night time photography. you will also be required to use a tripod for this.

nice civic, though. what kind of rims?

yes way too dark, not enough contrast, resolution is too low would be my critism. angles are your friend, its a little more than taking a picture, you have to find an angle that is flattering for your car, as chessy as that may sound...our cars look like sh*t from some angles and amazing from others.

1. your current pic (i flipped it to illustrate my point)
2. an older pic taken with a really bad camera - almost same angle but I used some blurring and coloring to cover up such a weak lo-res shot
3. taken with a slightly better camera and almost the same angle too, I think you should shoot at the highest res you can and try to show more of your wheel so you got a better focal point
4. I just touched up your pic a bit, for better or worse haha, but since it was really lo-res to begin with it was hard not making it look all pixel like...

hope this kinda helps and by no means am i suggesting i take good photos, but ive had pretty good success taking pics of my car and making it look better than it really is...haha...
