    Coming from a guy who doesnt shoot cars, Ill say they look like what I do. And thats about average IMO. Definitely nothing special. Theyre not "bad" though.

    well if i had more time to think about a location, it would've come out better. My friend wanted to have it done THAT day so i had literally 30 minutes to do it. except for the interior pics

    any location besides a neighborhood would have made the photos 100x better. pp is also essential

    I think theyre more than fine for selling a car. I dont think theyre magazine level but thats not what you need anyways. Dont sweat it and just try better next time if it bothers you.

    Lighting is a bit harsh... taken around 4-5 pm?

    Peeps already mentioned location

    Wheels are turned in most of the pics... that's a positive.

    I prefer using locations that minimize reflections on the paint. In some of the images, you can see your reflection, other cars, driveways, trees, garages, etc.

    Some here hate industrial settings, but I like them since I don't have many good spots where I live. Most industrial settings will have minimal reflections if you choose the right spot, so there's less chances of getting trees/poles/people/cars/etc in the reflection. Just a few examples
