Hey, just wanted some criticism about this shot. I'm still learning the ins and outs of photography and composition, so i wanted to know what i should improve upon.

thanks a lot, JOHN

I like it.

The car is the subject,and it's in focus and well exposed. The truck tires are outside the depth of field just the right amount, and actually accentuate the car.

The only thing I don't like is the deep shadow on the right, but if you crop it out, then you also crop out the bottom tire too much.

Unless you staged this, I don't think it could be any better.

well, thanks for the compliments. no, i didn't stage this. i was driving around, looking for random objects to shoot, and saw the tires. then i wanted to try a depth of field shot, so that's what i ended up with.



for reference, here's the tires by themselves:
