    Good shots but a polarizer would've done wonders. The lighting seems very harsh.

    yeah i could have used one of those too. it was super bright out there with quite a few trees to get the car half in the shadow half out.

    work different angles and you can get decent pictures. otherwise, reflections, shadows, people... they just make the pictures bleh.

    Who said you had to take pictures of the whole car? Work smaller areas.

    I had a Lotus parked under a bunch of trees so the shots wouldn't be the best, so I took a wheel shot instead

    This Mustang was under the same row of trees

    This white STi was half in bright sunlight, half in the shade. Common sense ... take a picture of half the vehicle

    You can't control the time and location but you control the framing. Make the most of it. People in front of the car? Wait til they move if you really want the shot.
