    The reflections on the side are distracting.. But that's all I can really say because I know nothing of shooting cars :rofl:

    My dad has an E-class. I don't think the star is tacky. But I think yours looks funny without it and the black grill will probably grow on me.

    if the photo is boring i'd concentrate your editing on the subject, not the background. unless there's something particularly interesting you want the viewer to notice about the background, but in this case i don't think that was your intention.

    not much editing i can do to a black car though. to me, using an angled crop adds more edge to the image

    would it make a difference if the car was blue? or red? or any other color?

    can you post an example of what you think a successful angle-cropped image that is not your own? I've seen this done a lot, and haven't found this technique particularly helpful.
