    they just look like snap shots... no preparation, no thinking about composition...

    Yeah, I would say the composition is lacking in all of them.

    #1: I'm drawn immediately to the reflections on the car.
    #4: The spot has a lot of potential for a good shot, try and go back there and work on some compositional shots of the area.

    While I agree with the C&C on the photos, I must admit, your Fiji FG2 is a beautiful car! I dig the JDM fogs & DRL's :thumbup:

    Are you on 8thcivic.com too? I am, same screen name, say hi :lol:

    Agreed. The parking garage shot is very difficult due to the lowness of the ceilings, harsh lighting, and distracting reflections from the two. I see it as a nightmare to shoot. Move outside and make it easier on yourself. Shooting cars at night without off camera flash is hard as well.

    In #4, I am searching for a focal point. Is it the bridge? or the building? Also, a lot of dead space in the foreground. Exposure seems decent. Go back with a clear vision of what you want us to see and photograph that.


    Welcome.

    I'm on the 8th ;)

    I joined when I was looking into an SI back in 08, actually got a Lancer GTS instead, but hung around there b/c I still love the car.

    I would have moved closer to the bridge and the railing (basically moved top-left direction of photo) and try to catch the reflection of bridge and buildings along with the skyline. It would have made a very nice shot.
