    The location blows. I like the last picture of your first post the most.

    PLEASE number your pics if you are going to post so many...

    The location is WAY to busy, and your angles are meh, try tilting the camera off level a bit. You try and create motion with them! I do like a few of them tho! Just to lazy to count my way through.

    Its not so much your camera setup its the location. Find somewhere a bit more open, or a bit more closed like an alley with nice graffiti, My favorite palce to shoot are well lit parking lots at night (empty) or the top levels of parking garages. The location you chose is really busy and distracting.

    Nothing. Your gear is more than up to the task, it's all about the skills of the person wielding it.

    I think these have potential, but I agree that a more interesting location would add a lot. In addition, make sure to think about the lighting, in this case primarily the time of day. Finally, try to shoot from unique angles that emphasize things like the car's stance or suggest motion, power, or anything else you'd care to emphasize about the car. These three things are the differences between your pictures and the Subaru picture. Also, tell your friend to paint his bumper (seriously, I never understood that), or find a different car, preferably one that is all the same color (imagine how much less attractive that picture would be with a primer bumper).

    His equipment is more or less the same as yours, it's what he's doing with it that's making the difference.

    thanks for the info. the 240 is my brothers car and he just bought it a week ago. the guy he bought it from put that bumper on it and never painted it. my brother isnt going to paint the bumper because he is getting rid of it and getting a stock purple one with foglights.:thumbup:
