    Welcome to the forum.

    I'd recommend posting between 3-5 images and numbering them if you're looking for C&C.

    I liked the photo of the STI, I have a soft spot for Subarus and that's the only car in the set I would drive.

    As far as the others go. None of them really do anything for me except the last two of the Pontiac. The lighting in that is really cool. (Although I'd crop out the lens flare. I find that distracting.)

    the sti and the last landscape one are nice. the others just do anything for me.

    though my only gripe about the sti pic is that the car is cut off. :(

    Welcome to the forum. I think you have a great eye for composition. I really like 3, 5, 7, 8, and 11. Keep shooting and have fun.

    I am relatively new to digital photography, but enjoy this forum very much.

    I like the STI the best, although I would like it a little tighter to get rid of the lights shining through the opening on the far left. Most of the others have too much going on in the background for me. I also like the shot of the dodge, but maybe a slightly lower perspective or maybe even wider angle.

    Hmm.. I actually like having a 'busy' background. IMO the pictures have more of a 'story' to them in a sense. I'm still a novice with a SLR(only had it for a few months) Though lately my shots havnt been coming out right, not sure what the problem is. Here is an example.

    You may prefer busy backgrounds. But as far as the general consensus among photographers go, it makes for a poor composition in most cases. Especially when showcasing a particular subject. Like a car.

    Objects that pop out, or bright lights appearing in the background will distract the viewer from what's supposed to be the focus of the image.

    Let me rephrase that. I think the term "busy" was probably misleading. What I was referring to were distractions like people, signs, and all the stuff inside the pole barn in #8. I know at a car show you can't always get everything out of the way, but maybe try to get less DOF by adjusting your aperture so the distractions blur and your main subject gets all of the attention.

    The truck photo you posted, I like the busy background because all of the lines and perspective it brings add to the picture, and i'm sure if you could get it to come out the way you envisioned it you would have an amazing pic.

    I may try my hand at adjusting the aperture to dull out the background as well.
    Another question, my latest pix have been coming out with a lot of noise. How can I fix that?

    On another note I like having an interesting background.. I'm still learning.

    others may be able to help more, but adjusting your iso to the lowest possible setting that will still yield acceptable shutter speeds (assuming your hand holding these) will help. opening up your aperture more will also help by letting more light in which will also let you use faster shutter speeds.
