Went for a short jaunt in the car last night and got some photos:
What do you reckon? Any critique would be appreciated
Taken on 300D with Tamron 28-75 at a mixture of settings.

No one got anything to say? Was hoping for some comments as I am just learning

I think you've got some technically good quality shots. Personally, they don't move me - but that's just my personal taste.
I like the composition of the first shot - you've used a small aperture to get the foreground and car in focus.
On shot two, don't take this the wrong way, but it doesn't say anything to me.
In the third shot I personally feel there's too much gravel in the frame, try cropping some of it out, see if you think it looks better or not.
In the last two shots the road sign looks like it's stuck out the back of the car!
I also don't want to be rude about a man's pride and joy, but perhaps the subject is not the most exciting.
I can see that you've thought very hard about your compositions and that's a great thing...keep it up and you'll get better all the time.

Thanks for the comments, the road sign out of the back of the car is a bit of a mistake really isn't it, blush.
I'll have look at cropping the sunset shot further to get rid of some of the gravel, see what happens.

In my opinion the first two shots are better because they make much better use of light. You picked a nice time of day, but in the second two you are photographing the side of the car that is in the shadows, they're just not as well lit. I like the second the best because you caught the sun glowing off of the car. Good angle.

Good call that. Hadn't thought about the fact that the lit side would have been better for the last two shots. Something to bear in mind. Cheers
