Hood misaligned

The passenger side of my hood is pushed forward about half an inch, ive tried losening the bolts that connect the hood to the hinges and pushing the hood back, but that didnt work. Any ideas of how to fix this?

Judging by the pics, it looks like the bumper is off more than the hood. Check to see if the bumper is centered. From the pics, it looks like it needs to be slid over towards the passenger side a little bit.

If it is not the bumper then it could be you bent the hood hinges. They bend easily but they dont bend by themselves... did you hit anything or did you sit on your car?
