    for "being shot on auto...you noob" it's a pretty good picture that i'm sure the car owner would be thrilled about.

    i guess next time tell those people standing near the car to stand further away to get 'dem reflections out

    I like how you didn't bother to control the car reflections.

    Why ask for a critique if you "Didn't think it out really"? Next time you'll think it out, it will obviously be better. Then I'd ask for a critique to see where you can improve.

    reflections, minivan, sign and lightpole in the background are all distracting details. you could probably photoshop them out and make it much better.

    the cropping kills the subject. next time pay just a little more attention to the frame and get the top and bottom of the corner in the photo.

    the strength of the photo is the implication of the author, that you are showing us a view of the subject that can't be seen from eye level, or just anyone passing by. lots of photographers employ this technique with varying success, but this needs to be emphasized more if that's what you're going for.

    if you're trying to emphasize the detail on this corner, try a smaller aperture to fuzz out the background and rear part of the car more (you can do this in photoshop also, to some degree) and show the viewer what you want them to look at.

    yea, i didn't plan on the car being there. he just showed up and i thought it was badass so i wanted to shoot it. i guess i just wanted some criticism on the angle, distance, etc. i know it would look better if i planned it though.
