    Lighting on the first shot is excellent. I would've shifted the car to your left (the car's right) more so that it would've been in front of the building completely. The gap between the two buildings (shrubbery) takes away from the car itself.

    As mentioned, the 2nd shot is a nice angle but the backdrop has way too much going on. I prefer using industrial buildings as back drops but use what you have in your area. I live in Amish country so the countryside is readily available; I have to drive 30-40 minutes to find industrial backdrops :(

    Also, try different angles and focus on different elements on the car to bring out aspects that make the car what it is. On the NSX, I would focus on the rear half of the car (mid-engine design = sex). Standing next to the driver side door, camera on the ground angled upwards, take a shot of the of the side scoop in front of the rear wheel and also get a portion of the rear wheel. If you get a ladder or get on someone's shoulders, you can get some nice shots from angles above.

    Everyone is different so just take a bunch of shots from diffierent angles, different views and you'll probably get a few that stand out. For me, I love taking wheel shots. Here's a shot of my friend's RX8 front wheel. It's simple but I love looking at shots like this:

    thanks for the comments guys, no NSX haters here :) Evan, I would love to have new pics taken, I think you're one of the best automotive photographers on this forum. Maybe in a few weeks after I get my wheel adapters for my rear wheels. As you can tell, I lowered her.

    I just can't see doing shots of a wheel on a car...it's kinda like shooting the headlight. The first NSX shot is great as far as the angle of the car. I have a red RSX. :)

    Oh and I don't care that the pics are dog shit, I took all the pics in like 1 hour and I was doing other things. Not to mention I was getting paid and my employer wanted me to just go out and snap a couple pics and he didn't care wtf I was taking pictures of... so :dunno:
