    1st shot, great contrast/color/exposure, along with a very nice location. You were able to get a nice simple backdrop that also prevent unwanted reflections on the car. I would crop off a little on the bottom.

    2nd shot, not bad but the pole in the background takes away from the crop. Crop off more on the bottom... way too much unnecessary space there.

    Third shot, image quality is nice but composition is meh. It's just a normal car. If it was a Carrera GT or something worthwhile, then I'd post but not a VW. Crop off on the bottom, also.

    The last.. meh. Still life doesn't interest me but others might be.

    2 would be a great shot had you been in the center of the tracks...

    the first shot works because of the background.

    the silver color of the car and most everything looks bleak and dull until you get to the red bricks. nice contrast and pop. the sign does suck.

    the second car shot does not work -- because of the background.

    cigar guy works only because of the shadow but when i look at his face it looks like you got the wrong moment.

    what did you end up doing to the first pic? unless you had great lighting conditions, I'd have a hard time believing you if you didn't take a while processing those.

    like the first two but...

    1. The reflection on the bottom of the front and back window were the first thing I noticed. Then the sign in the upper left. I love the b/g and the car is exposed really well.

    2. Shot is cool minus the pole, but someone already said that :o:

    I had great lighting conditions for that picture. There was very little that I needed to do to it other than clone out some garbage and a minor tweak to the levels and USM. And by minor, I mean VERY minor.

    cigar guy looks "posed" like you made him take it like that.. doesn't look natural.

    Yup, and L glass.


    The Cigar guy is a bit diappointing from the expression, but he'd only sat down for about 30 seconds before he got up and started talking to people. I wish he'd been a bit more relaxed during that shot.

    I've been thinking about cloning out the post on #2, I think the shot would improve a bit. I waffle on whether I should lose the sign in #1 though, somedays I like it like that, other days I don't.
