    Well, since you asked, I think most of these suffer badly from issues with either exposure, white balance, noise, or focus. Most of these look like point and shoot shots that didn't get much thought put into them. Find a better location than a parking lot or car wash, get a tripod and set it to ISO 200 and you'll get better results. Oh and set your white balance.

    To start off with, I'd say this is fine for now. However, since it seems like you spend a lot of time with and working on your car with your buddies, why not spruce it up by upgrading your equipment? Pick up a nice SLR, experiment and you'll be pleased what you come up with.

    Love the 2nd shot btw

    They are nice cars, but they are not nice pictures. Good for facebook posting, but I don't consider these photographs.

    Exposure is bad, composition is non existant, the white balance is off, sharpness, lighting, location.... most things need to be done different and can be improved.

    Read up on actual photography:
    Exposure (shutter, ISO, aperture)
    Composition rules (rule of thirds, angles,...)
    Look at professional car pictures and try and copy those to start

    A bit harsh, aren't we? Ok, exposure kind of sucks, but "composition is non existant"? "Location"? I don't think you have seen that many professional car pictures sir. Trying to copy them is exactly what he does. Sure, everything needs work, but unless you think that people climb places or drop to the ground to take casual snapshots, you can see that the effort is there in most of these photographs.

    However i second the advice, read up the basics of photography and practice a bit with your camera and you'll see a huge improvement to these shots.

    I highly recommend getting better at photography before going for equipment. Your P80 (right?) should be capable of much more than this if you use it properly. As for equipment, try a cheap tripod (or improvise a substitute) for low light shots and see what this gets you.

    That is all the stuff I am working on!!!

    Those pics were taken months ago! But by putting them on here I am hoping to learn alot from the books and my uncle and see what the next step look like. If they get better then I am happy!!!

    I am looking to get alot better.

    So I have gotten three books so far and reading alot and also reading on here a ton of stuff.

    No need to get all worked up about it, just a C&C. You never really know how serious people are on these forums. People come and go all the time.

    But,
    1) What camera are you considering getting?
    2) What software are you going to use for PP? (Use them)

    Post more soon, I'd like to see how your work progresses if your that dedicated as you say you are. I'm working on technique as well, and doing work on car photography as well
