    For me the best one is the 1st porche pic. BTW that porche is sweet with black rims!

    and the wrx with the houses is a very nice shot, pity the houses are at a slight angle...

    also the last shot is really nice too!

    The lancer doesn't look that bad, it just has a case of "I need to get this lowered as fast as i can" lol...

    The lancer and porsche have a bit too much black I think. Otherwise, great pictures.

    Snazzy. Car photos that are shot from ground or near ground level are really appealing to me, as you have done in no. 8.

    Silver is a harder color to shoot on cars IMO. Just kinda boring. Seems like you have to really focus on your background or other complimenting elements to emphasize a silver car. Too much contrast to the point that it's blowing out the shadows. Ironically you should have used higher contrast on the silver and less on the blacks.

    Here are a couple shots of a silver S4 I took. I don't necessarly like the composition of the first one as much, but find the car to look more appealing because of the higher contrast. The second shot could stand to have a boost in contrast.

    DOF and location are also a big part. Living in chicago you should have plenty to choose from.

    that GT3 is SICK!!! The Lancer photos could stand to lighten up a bit in PS cause the Lancer seems to blend into the background. The STi is pretty damn cool too :) Great angles and all. I have learned that shots of cars tend to be better if taken from headlight level or below.
