    Way too many to C&C.

    Overall... they look overexposed to me.

    overexposed? a lot of them look too dark. I think the backgrounds are a little distracting. also, a Honda Civic SI at an old style diner really doesn't theme well and i keep looking at the building more so the car. my biggest word of advice would be to be mindful of your background.

    Yeah I looked through them again... you're right. I guess my eyes got stuck on the first one... I think maybe the overall exposere is off a bit.

    too many to review individually, overall watch your composition and rule of thirds. Very noisy. I would recommend a tripod and lowering the shutter speed and lowering the ISO. Also everything is in focus. To reduce distracting reflections you might get a high quality circular polarizer, I've heard good things about the Hoya Pro1D series

    I like 13 the most. I think the lines that the trailers form are great. They really bring your eye to the car. It is a little dark though, as some have pointed out. I say, nice first attempt.

    The images are not crisp enough to retain attention.

    However, I think the wheels should be facing out and not in, I just observe most car shots to use that technique.

    Lights, need more lights!

    Keep it coming.

    Yeah gotta agree too many, but I would suggest going back there after a good rain. The neon makes for some very colorful refections. Does that drive in have a classic car night? I would hit it up then. Even better....Classic car night after a nice rain. lol
