Like the others said, its all a matter of taste but, depending what you're going for, the HDR really does add a lot of punch to this shot. I kind of like it myself.

I like the HDR treatment of the car. Removing the hot spot was a big improvement IMHO.

By the way, nice ride.

I like # 1..the car pix is very good...I don't like the street light effect...too starburst for my tastes, but that's just me.

Like the car...looks like a ready to rally Subaru.

i like the car in the first photo, the background to me is to busy and distracting, lights, truck, (in all variations) maybe a wider f stop if you can ??
a lower angle may have hidden the truck behind the scoop?
i prefer the warmer (oranger ) photo the first one is a bit flat, the reflections really come out in the warmer version

The last one is the best IMO.
