    personally i hate all the telephone wires and mess that industrial areas have.
    #11 i have no idea what you're trying to do....but i think you should remove it from the set.
    #9/10 is the best of the set imo. I just dont know what you're using for lights because the huge strip box looking reflection is kind of distracting. i'd try to fix that one in post.
    #6/7 would be good if there were more light on the wheels and again take out the light poles/telephone poles in post.

    The background choices need improvement. They're pretty much all from the same angles and perspectives. The placement of the cars in the frame is pretty boring most of the time and they need to fill up more of the frame, especially when the background adds nothing to the shots. Also, the point of fill lighting is so the background isn't blown out, which is what you did half the time anyway.

    6-9 make the car look dirty. i dont know if its the white balance but the door has glare, not shine in that pic. no reflections on the side of the car, also make it look dirty.

    Getting much better. My beef is the horrible locations — way too cluttered.

    it's also a term of respect, or sarcastically used to insult someone with a superiority complex

    composition isnt bad at all. mucho better than before. Lighting, well. You lit a white car and still managed to get really bad reflections in it, i would def watch teh family of angles that you are dealing with that way you dont catch the reflections. Any other color car other than maybe silver the shit would be ruined due to the flash.

    But definitely moving up and in the right direction.

    Both awesome cars! Composition good, location is fine for what you are shooting, if you look at a Super Street they like that stuff.

    I prefer the shots where the flashes are far enough away where it only accents the ambient light instead of overpowers it.

    And my god that Miata is fucking ugly. I fucking hate those kinds of wheels.
