I know transportion is not that common in this forum but I'm sure some people can help me to improve the image. Any help is welcome!

yes! i want to see more of this style or at least more practical commercial uses of retouching...great work
though really think the car needs to be grounded more... the shadow from the sun casting the light shadow is great but it needs something way darker and closer to the wheel base to be more realistic...

I like both this kind of image, and this image. there are however a few
things that I think could use a little tweak, the perspective seems a little
off, bright highlights on front fascia and shadow is off.

Yeah the light sources are kind of off - the sun doesn't line up with the lighting on the car or the background or the drop shadows. I would get rid of the sun/lens flare altogether. Besides that the background is very impressive.

Thanks for the comments. You guys are right, the light situation is not right. I overworked that.

Yeah refreshing to see some more automotive retouching
I'd say mostly perspective seems off, but also the shadow is off and the tires should be blurred on the frontside as well. Also a bit too sharp to my taste.
For the perspective you might have to reshape the background image (at least the road), or use different road image.

Thanks for the help. I changed the shadow and the perspective.

You have great idea to start with. Just a notice that your car rather looks cut out one of the things that catches eye is too much exaggerate highlights on the car road needs some toning down (at least some parts) and the shadow under car needs attention. By pure accident I came across this quiet similar photo: http://thebitemag.com/issue5/index.html#/192/
