    Too many pictures to do C&C on.

    They're mostly snapshots.

    Just post 2 or 3 pics and they will respond alot better!

    This coming from a newbie too.

    I would have to say that #1----#7-----#13 are the best of the three.

    Delete the rest and see what people say about those three.


    #2 is underexposed and #3 is overexposed I think!

    Most of the rest kinda look like Snap shots


    Something about number 7 Catches my eye with the salt cristal in the middle or what ever that is!

    Try to find the book called Idiots Guide to Photography Essentials! I have read it like 5 times!

    But in simple terms... Under Exposed is too dark Over is to much light!

    I am sure others can go into a ton of detail into that and there are whole books just about exposure. I bought some off ebay from really cheap.... 6 bucks to 10 bucks shipped!

    Are you shooting in RAW or JPEG? I have a Canon XTi and I get better results shooting RAW. My JPEG images were really soft.

    How much post processing (photo editing) are you doing to these pictures?

    What lens are you using now? How much are you willing to spend on a new lens?

    ouch those pics are...
    very noisy and oof
    i reccommend you use it in Aperture priority = AP (unless you require speed in which case use shutter priority = TV.)

    and in daylight keep your ISO at 100, no need for it to create noise when it isn't needed
    and aperture between f8 - f16
    also im guessing you have the 18-55mm kit lens, thats fine for car photography tbh

    i use the Canon xti
    it creates some nice images, but they can be pretty Out of focus sometimes / blurry and shows ALLOT of UV haze (even with a uv filter on)

    but i recommend buying the 50mm II Ef-S lens for around £70 - 100
    your first shots look allot like mines :p i would keep them, then look back at them in 3 month time
    and you will see how much better you have gotten,,, assuming you play with the camera all the time
