I love the first and third shot. The third one looks like the dealer poster I have on my wall.
Thank you!

I'm not sure what you mean by "heat"? If I had to guess I would think you're talking about color temperature which I don't keep track of. On the camera I used manual mode, set my ISO, shutter, and aperture, and the rest I edited in Lightroom. For the shot with the blue faded to orange sky I used a graduated filter within Lightroom. One thing people don't quite understand is that when you're shooting with RAW, it's much better to shoot underexposed rather than overexposed. That way you can pull out a lot of detail in your shadows and your highlights won't overexposed, such as I did with my sky pictures.
I'm super new with photography and I'm wondering what you mean exactly by underexposed and overexposed?

Overexposed - Too bright
Underexposed - Too dark.

And how do you make that difference. Quicker shutter speed?

Depending on lighting condition, ISO and F/Stops. It's better to have your frame under exposed, you can correct with CS6 or Lightroom. You can't do much with an over exposed frame.

Can you go further into how? So if the lighting conditions are X, that means I have to do what to make it have less exposure?

Thanks Tom for sharing the link....below is another one that's very informative regarding the triangle of photography (ISO, F/Stops and Shutter Speeds)

Thanks! I'll be taking more now that I recently put on rims and lowered my car. I'll submit those instead!

Thank you. I most likely followed back since I follow back everyone. If not let me know your Flickr name and I'll follow back!

Hey, you can also go onto youtube and search "Photography for beginners". You'll find a plethora of videos to help you out. I learn better by watching, not by reading. I learned most of my "skills" by watching youtube videos. Months later I took photography in college which was pretty useless, but it teaches you the "art appreciation" aspect of photography. It was useless to me as in I didn't learn anything I didn't already know.

Also, most everyone on here will assume you have a DSLR or mirrorless camera. You'll need one of these in order to make the adjustments we are talking about. I assume you have one though! Have fun!
