Hi Abhi,

The composition is intersting. A nice leading line diagonally draws the viewer through the photograph. The lighting is a bit harsh. Especially with respect to the front of the yellow car. You may wish to diffuse the light using 1 or 2 layers of wax or parchment paper or grab a lower wattage bulb. This might prevent some of the blow outs that are currently present. Also there is something blocking the front wheel ( this really spoils the illusion of being a real car). I'll ignore the background ( good improvization). I would also take a couple more with slightly different orientation and cropping. This is one situation where posting more than 1 image [of the same subject] is appropriate

I do like the lighting and contrast on the red car.

Thanks for sharing

Prefer the camera angle of the 1st one. Suits the light better. There is a lack of light on the top surfaces of the car with this one. I would attempt to use a white relector (white cardboard) to bounce some light back down onto the top of the car.

The light is still strong from below. Maybe try 2 layers of table cloth.

Your models are beautifully detailed. Very nice work. What is the scale?

I notice that the reflected highlights are quite blue, which indicates that, while your white balance is good for the incandescent light, the outside light is going to be strongly blue. If you follow Redrhino's suggestion to increase the overhead light, this should lessen that effect. Possibly reflect another light off ceiling?
