thank you.
I did VERY minimal post processing on this picture, it was more a result of proper setup and very lucky timing. As you can see the building behind the car is mirrors essentially, I got lucky and the sun was bouncing off the mirrors right onto that portion of the sidewalk. I had the car positioned in that area and just nailed the exposure over and over, the pictures came out great as taken.

In any case I did my normal stuff, in light room I set the curves to strong contrast, increased the clarity a bit and messed with the blue saturation a bit to make the sky pop that little bit more. Then I exported to photoshop, cleaned up all the ugly parts (like gum on the sidewalk, and removing imperfections) and then applied my watermark.

Here is another one (the lighting was SO perfect, only a couple minutes later when I had another car go to the same spot, the lighting wasn't as good).

Plus the car being absolutely spotless doesn't hurt either....

It's so hard to get TiAg to expose that perfectly in the strong sunlight! Good work!
