    I took these photos of my friends car, and I thought they came out pretty good for the 5 rushed minutes that we were there.

    I didn't have any equipment with me except for my D70s and 18-70mm lens, so shooting these were a little difficult. C&C welcome.

    So, what would you have done differently, given a choice of equipment?

    Well, for one I would have used a tripod so I could have a better choice of angles other than what a curb and some stairs provided. I would have placed a flash off to the side of the car to get better lighting on it and to show the contour of the hood.

    i might suggest a tighter crop for these. otherwise, rushed or not, the came out good.

    Thanks for the comments!

    I was going to crop out the bottom and left sides on the first one, but I kinda like it how it is.

    nah, the first one is nice the way it is with the cityscape. i ment the other two could use a tighter crop.

    In the first, the primary subject gets a little lost since the car (and it is about the CAR, this photo, isn't it) is all in the shadows plus it is a bit small, BUT ... I still like this photo best of all.
    This may have two reasons:
    a) car photos don't talk to me as much as they do to others and
    b) composition, chosen aperture, exposure and buildings in that first one look so nice! :D
    Therefore - and you have already come to the same conclusion - I would not touch that one at all, I would forget ALL about cropping! It is good as it is! (It just isn't a Photo Of The Car ;)).
