    #4's an outstanding composition, I'd maybe try to get more angle on the car though. Not sure about the PP.. looks very 'played with' and the reflection of the bridge on the hood is a minor hit if I want to be super-critical.

    #6 is also nice and a common angle taken by many pro car photographers. Sometimes they get higher, depends on the car.. You did a good job showing the car's unique features, that's what counts.

    The others aren't bad but they're not nearly as good as 4 and 6.

    Next time you put all this work into a car shoot, take a few seconds and remove the plate. The holes in the bumper are easy as pie to clone out too.

    The backround is the Croton Dam. I was there a few weeks back shooting the dam. Great location...20 minutes from my house.

    The picture looks really nice. This is why I pick up a DSLR too, for car photography.

    To all the car guys. Wipe the dirt off the tires and always bring some armorall or whatever you're going to use on the tires and put some on the exposed treads. It might be just me but I find it very distracting when the tire doesn't look clean or completely black. When you're going for these glamor car shots I think it's really important that the car look like a show car and not a daily driver.

    Am I missing something?

    I always wonder over the painted over license plate numbers.

    What's the purpose of that?

    These are all really nice....however, in my personal opinion a lot of these would be much more stellar images if you got rid of the car. For example, 2 and 4 would be even better images if the car wasn't in the way. Just my opinion of course.
