    I already know in this one, if I could have removed the Altima out of the background it would have came out a little better

    I like them all, the training ones are very photojournalistic ..

    The car shots are ok, but the place you have to shoot isnt the best, try a lower angle the car will look even more god-like.. Nice car BTW,

    Heya madcatz, welcome to ThePhotoForum.
    I fear that 23 pics in one thread are just a bit too many for any in-depth critiquing of each and every one of them.
    I know that I like Photo 11 from its point of view and colour of sky and the fact that the focus is on the plants, not on the soldiers.

    The photos of the cartridges are nice, though I personally would have put the focus somewhere different from where you put it in Photo 19.
    (Plus, being that fluffy peaceloving cheerful me who I am, I'd have preferred to see colour pencils instead, but yeah... female, eh?)

    Sorry to be so frank but I personally find car shots boring ... yeah, well. Female, I guess..... ;).

    Post less in one thread and you will get a better feedback, is what experience has shown.

    thanks for the comment about the car. She is so naked now. Parted out and being sold as close to stock as I could get her.

    Those pictures were at the height of her game.

    Thank you for your comments on the training pictures too. If you have any critiques please et me have it. My photography skills seem to be lacking now, and I am just not pleased with any of my newer stuff.

    Laphoto thanks for the critique, I didnt notice you posted till I looked at my post again.

    I know 23 is a bit much, but I was hoping that someone would let me have it on a couple and tell me what I need to do or what I shouldnt do anymore.

    thanks again, and thanks in advance for anyone else who feels the need to tear me a new one, or just say nice job

    For the car shot, I like number 3, that look pretty unique, pretty good composition. The other two shots, well, the driveways were not very good looking for a car shot =). But if you notice the reflectiction of the trees on the hood and windshield of the car, that would be cool if you can capture just that rather than the driveway and part of the other car. I also like number 11 and 16, they were shot from a very unique points of views.
