ISO 100 f/2.8 4 secs. straight out of camera.

Something I came upon while we were out exploring. I think the light looks really cool projecting on the building behind the cruiser.

It's a bit crooked. Any other inputs? I would like to know what type of post processing you would do or different composition you might consider.

Epic shot! I think straightening and centering the car would do.
Tbh I don't think Speed's edit did it good, mainly the fill light.

Dope shot. Just straighten and center IMO.

thanks for the input guys.
How can I selectively suppress really bright spots with blown highlights?

You can try an averaged exposure then bring up shadows and suppress highlights in post-processing, but that usually doesn't yield great results.

Your best bet is HDR or bracketing exposures and merging those shots in post-processing.

If you start doing this in post, those spots are going to end up grey and muddy. Best to write it off and do better in camera next time. The blowouts don't really bother me here though...I would straighten and reframe a bit but not much more than that. Nice catch!

Not entirely sure that would do any justice to this photo as that style generally leaves a "cheese factor". But I do think playing with the highlights and shadows is where OP would benefit the most

Unless you're trying to capture the light source your exposure level looks good to me. Those leds are very bright and beyond the cam's and the human eye's dynamic range; you shouldn't be able to see them and see the low light areas.
What you see is what you get. I like as is with the minor touch ups...

Just when I thought I was out... they pulled me back in.
