Hi

I like the horizontal lines leading up to it - and the mean "black" look. It's a nice car I'm sure!

Maybe the photo is cropped a little too tightly around the car though.

Also, I might not be right on this, but I'm not sure if the colour of the background compliments the car much.

.....a much more appealing composition than the garage. If I were making the photo with that setting I would prefer a 3/4 from the cars left front, front wheels turned some left and a lower line of sight, fill the frame while bracketing less of the ramp and more water. The front windows are a bit distracting here, the 3/4 from front would lessen that and the off camber presentation would work well to show the car with a bit of an aggressive stance.

I am suspecting the car is yours, nice automobile ... here is a snapshot of my '05 5.7L HEMI happiness

I like the idea of the horisontal lines on the first one, but agree with the crop being a little bit too tight. I also think the horisonal lines would work a lot better from a lower perspective.

I really like the last one.

Nonsense, pgmCoder....what better backdrop for a car shot than a gargage? j/k I agree, but they do make for such a convenient place to takea pic. :-)



boofighter, I like that 2nd pic. It's touch to capture detail in dark colored cars. While there aren't many cuts in the sides of the body, the pic has a nice even reflection to the paint and doesn't make the car look so plain. The angle makes the shot more interesting, too. Like other, I like the lines leading up to the car in the 1st pic, but, as someone mentioned, it seems cropped too close to the car.
