    &C per req:

    With the exception of the blown skies, the exposure is good; always try and minimize the amount of sky in images like this when it's like that. I'm not sure if you were trying for 'creative' angles, but all of the images seem to me to need straightening. If you are going to go angles, try and avoid things that look 'wrong'; lamp posts, trees, people, etc when not straight.

    Just my $00.02 worth - your milage may vary.

    #2 looks slightly overexposed. Good photos. They looks a little like snapshots, although I don't know if you were going for creative.

    Just #2?

    They're all VERY blown out esp. in skies, and I'm guessing OP was going for the creative angles but the horizons are crooked in all of them but the close up engine shot.

    That being said, they were shot in auto. There's only so much I can say about the exposure. The camera did its job as far as exposure, you exposed for the cars and the skies went white as a result.

    But definitely the horizons need fixing.

    Well, #2 just became #4. Oh well. It was the most overexposed in my opinion.

    Yeah - #2, #4, either way.

    They ALL, except the new #2 have completely white skies, peoples shirts are pure white, etc. They're all blown out in HUGE AMOUNTS except for #2, and that's mostly because there's a lot of tree cover (you can see tiny bits of white here and there behind the trees).

    That out of the way, even if exposure still isn't perfect the first two (the new ones) are MUCH better as far as horizon goes.
