And one from another set I'm working on:

Good start here! I'd have shot earlier while there was still some light in the sky. See the link in my Sig.
For the last one, try shooting later & MOVE YOUR FEET!

I love good night shots! Yours are really well exposed and no need to shoot earlier IMO.

The BMW exposure is quite good too, considering the time of day there is no harsh sunlight. Although I'm not such a fan of close-in wide-angle shots of cars.

Thanks... Time wasn't really an issue on either of these shoots. The night shots were taken just because we were there and he wanted some pictures. The last shot was for a local BMW tuning shop, and I was only able to take the shots when they were ready to take me out with the car, and we went to a location of their choice.

I too love night shots, but a tiny tiny bit of light in the sky would have been appreciated.

Yeah, wide angles aren't for everyone.

Great images! Where downtown did you shoot those? Looks like it's near Union Station.

I love the processing done on the series.

Question tho; are those gold rotors or rusted/ozodized?

Nice shots! I think the gold your seeing is the rotor reflecting light from the light pole..

I really like these, nice crop on #1, #3 & 5 are lovely shots.

Not so keen on #2, the light reflection on the top of the front wheel arch looks like a dent for some reason.

Yeah, I probably could has PS'd out the reflections, but I was kind of lazy.
