    I'm no expert, but the best IMO would be the head on last pic. #3 could have used a little more fill light to the side of the car.

    Dope. PP is dope too, although the highlights are too dark.

    I like them. I always dig nice dark contrast.

    I love your composition, but the dark contrast is a bit much for me. I would prefer slightly less to bring out a little more detail on the car.

    3&4 look too dark. 1 is close. I like most of the composition and PP, but the car is too dark in some of those. Not sure what it would look like it you ONLY did the car a little brighter and not the background.

    Yeah, i was thinking if you could layer mask the car and reduce the contrast on just the car, then it would really pop.

    Christ almighty!

    TO. MUCH. CONTRAST!

    Back off the saturation and contrast by at least 50%. My god. :barf:It's particularly bad in #3. Seriously, how do you get crushed blacks AND a blown sky in the same photo? It could have been a decent composition if you hadn't gotten all heavy handed in post. #1 has a very uncomfortable crop, it's way to tight nose and tail, and #2 would be a lot better without a pole coming out of the roof.

    This photo is almost awesome:

    If the car had only been positioned right in the middle of that lane of bricks instead of close to the concrete you would have had a really awesome composition. :wtc:

    Similar thing here:

    If the car was 4-5 feet back and positioned straight so the stripes on the care were parallel with the edge of the frame it would have been vastly better composition.
