I suspect your contrasts are fine, it is just the scanner that washed out the contrasts - let's see what it looks like with the next scan and the shadow in. You are doing a great job so far Adrian :clap: :clap: :clap:

Here is the next version, added the shadow under the car, and also added a bit more value on the bodywork.
Took photo with camera again rather than the scanner.

Adrian,

Much better.  It looks so much darker when I pull away from the screen.

Thanks... I don't like the building reflection on the bonnet (hood). May give it another go sometime...

Oh, yes, Adrian, I see what you mean about the reflections.

Look more like people standing near the car to admire it.  The short person would be me!!!

Great job Adrian :clap: :clap: :clap:
if the reflections look like people, or something else it doesn't matter - leaves it up to the viewer's imagination O0

Looking at the image again now, I think the problem with those shadows is that they do not extend onto the bumper/fender at the front of the car. That part is 'constant tonal value' and should be darker where the shadow is.
