The exposure and sharpness of these images seem fine, but i just dont find them very interesting.

I feel like 3 and 4 could be good from a slightly different perspective.

A lot i think your just too close to the background. Seeing the ugly weeds in focus kills it for me.

Thanks Matt I know some people said I needed a better location and for a Subaru so I found a place that would mix both aspects of the forester the construction and a bit of outdoors look. Thats why I went with the location. How should I go about decreasing the weeds next time as I parked 1/2 on the dirt road?

I guess what i was saying is the weeds where kinda blocking the car in one photo. Just didnt work for me. The last on seemed busy a lot of different stuff, the car, building, roof car port, weeds.

I would say shoot the car where its got clear unobstucted view around it for 5-10 feet on all focal angles. I need to feel like the car is no. 1 in the photo.

You can always add aspects of the background just try to make it not distracting

I don't think you should chop off any of the car as in number two. The main thing to work on is framing

stop down your aperture a little to get more of the car in focus, try around f8 or so. if you need more light, try bumping up the ISO a little or shooting in some more light.

if you have a circular polarizer you can adjust it to alter and remove the reflections off things like the windshield.

I agree the location could be better, judging from your info, you're on the eastern side of Japan, I'm not too familiar with your area, but if you're near a good beach or something, that might be an attractive option.
