What could I have done to minimize the glare off of the rims on this shot?

A CPL filter would have helped.
Welcome to the Hog, Gomer.

As "Marionsho" said, you could have used CPL (Polarizing Filter) to reduce the glare and to get a good color for that.
What I would have done is, after studying the subject, i would have changed the direction of the car a little bit so that the sun rays are not coming towards the camera. It is just the way of directing the light somewhere else or you could have tried moving yourself little left of right so that you could reduce the glare as much as possible. Even without the CPL filter, try different positions. You might see the difference.

Just needs a little PP work. Like removing the shadow. Some clarity adjustments a little contrast.

The sun is obviously low in the horizon, shooting at and after sunset will eliminate the harsh reflections and give a more colorful reflection.

I do not think there is "glare off the rims", however, if you have lightroom, in the develop panel, basic tab, move the high slider to the left and the shadow slider to the right, see how that looks to you.

Polarizing filters have little or NO effect on reflections from metal. So ignore that advice.


Not sure there is all that much glare off the rims, but your solution is: The angle of reflection is equal to the angle of incidence. A concept every photographer needs to know as it solves all kinds of problems.

Thanks Cliff, I stand corrected. :thumbup:

Sorry, have to disagree with that comment. Mine are quite effective at reducing chrome and body glare.

The body is paint, not metal and maybe a matter of words but polarizer will not affect REFLECTIONS from metal. Glare is really an catch-all description of too much light. So it may well help with what you describe as glare.

Polarizers help with ALL reflected light. Regardless of the material. The smoother the surface, the less effect, because what a polarizer does is blocks light that is not traveling in the same plane as the polarization.
What it will not do is help with specular highlights, which metals and highly reflective materials are very good at.

I don't see any glare, what I see is the reflection of the sun off the tires and the side of the car giving a yellow reflection. Like I said, just a little adjustment and it will clean up.
