If you post a pic from your phone for example it will be the size of the pic in your signature, which is not what you want when people want to scroll through the entries.
If you use PhotoBucket or something similar they will show as a full size pic.
If you have no other choice then I will edit the post and make it bigger for you.
For example your sig pic would look like this, which is far easier to view
Dusk is OK.
You might already have some great pics that you've taken where the backdrop has plenty of lighting. There a lot of places in a city I can think of.

Plenty of ways to get a great pic at night.
I snapped my first night shot just in the driveway. It's difficult when you can't see the car in the view finder. Had to set lens to auto focus and turn on flash.

I'm no help with camera settings and adjustments but that pic you took would look amazing on a bright moonlit night.
You'd be amazed how good your car can look in your garage. You turn your garage lights on and get a pic at the right angle it can look magic
I don't expect to win any competition, but I'm going a little different route because it's what I want. I've been building hotrods for 24 years, and this will be my first ECM driven hotrod, ie, no carburetor. Keeping true to my core, I'm going old school hotrod with it. The first "mod" was a...
