    I would like some critiquing and comments on my photos and thought I would turn to the FChat community for some help.

    My photos are located at flickr.com/photos/carguy98photos.

    Any advice or comments are appreciated (good or bad).

    Thank you in advance.

    My initial reaction would be to use some different angles. Don't get me wrong, the typical 3/4 shows off the car the best, and everyone including myself take many photos from this angle. But it gets rather boring. Get creative. Low angle, high angle, and close up detail photos do a great job of capturing parts of the cars most people overlook. Just my .02 though :)

    For both posters...... as well as what Peter said, I think the composition also needs to be worked on. Some images are far too tight at the edges (I know the lenses aren't always wide enough!), which makes me feel uncomfortable looking at them. Framing is extremely important as it gives a good balance.

    Cool, thanks!

    I'm using a point and shoot for now. I been trying to work on it, I usually tend to crop the image to make it tighter, I guess I shouldn't do that anymore :D

    Thanks again!
