Checking your ISO rating is always a guid start,

Some nice pics there John.

Your exposures will be a bit difficult because the sky/background is SO bright.

Your camera is metering the exposure for the majority of the frame (ie, the bright background) as opposed to metering the exposure for the dark object in the middle.

Three things can be done with the camera:

1) Use fill-in flash. This is when you force the flash on, so that objects close to you don't seem too dark if the background is very bright.

2) Change the way which the camera meters the frame. In the middle of the screen you'll have a [] or a [ ]. They're differnt metering settings, which will either look at a narrower/wider field when focussing/metering.

3) Setup exposure compensation, so that it slightly over-exposes when you expose such shots. The background will look slightly burnt though.


I'd say option 1 is best, but given you're using a compact camera, the flash may not be powerful enough.


You can also use the "burn" tool in photoshop, which will allow you to push-expose the car a bit more.
