This is my first real attempt to photograph my car. These are all done with natural light. Please let me know what you think, and any suggestions for improvements. Thanks.

There are plenty of people here (excellent photographers) that will C&C your photos. I just wanted to compliment the nice car. Peter

The shadows falling on the car, and low light detract from what is otherwise a well framed photo. You could also use a little more background blur (bokeh).

Thanks for the critique snails. I will have to get back out and try it again a bit earlier in the day.

Nice car, mustangs are definitely my favorite. Overall the photos look soft to me, did you do any pp work before posting these? For the first photo I'm not liking how the front half is in the shade and the back half is in the sun, I would move the car to either bet totally shaded or totally in the sun. I think the crop is a little tight on the second photo, if you notice you're cutting off some of the tire in the lower part of the picture. The 3rd has some potential to be the best out of all of them. I'd start off by leaving a little more room in the foreground, if you have photoshop i'd clone out the senor dust, and i'd either move the car to where the flag poles aren't sticking out of the room or i'd clone them out completely. That looks to be a good location for shots and you've got some things working there, keep at it.

Get some Ford Motorsport "C" Springs on it. Makes it much more photogenic when it's lower. But that's just my opinion.

I agree with the guys above.
The light on #3 is pretty good. Even later would work, too. See the links in my Sig. And...

I have always preferred the auto shots when the camera/photographer are closer to the ground. Produces a little bit more of an interesting perspective...I hate the background of this shot but I like the angle of attack...

Thank you all for the very helpful critiques. I will deffinalty try again. As far as the lowered springs, I agree the look better, but I drive this all year, every day. It barely makes it through the snow now. I can't even imagine if you droped a half inch or more.:)

It barely makes it through the snow now. I can't even imagine if you dropped a half inch or more. I agree. I've seen show here too deep to push through in just one hour.

Love the 4th one but I think I would get dizzy taking it.

Thanks. The hardest part was trying to set up the tripod in the car. I had could barely get to the shifter.
Photos Guy: it was impossible before I got the snow tires. They really help out.
