The fisheye lens is only useful to certain perspectives, and you didn't capture those...I also don't like your editing style or choice of backgrounds

Most of them seem underexposed and the wheels don't help being that dark it looks off and could use some fill flash which I'm assuming you didn't have which is fine. The tagging behind it is cool but the truck is very distracting. hope this helps out a bit. Good start though.

PhotosGuy will be in this thread shortly to offer you more advice and a few threads to read, but...my 2 cents:

in #1 the graffiti is distracting, also might want to find another spot to shoot, people normally frown on light poles and power lines. In 2, the car is growing a power line. And the wheels seem underexposed in the shots as well. And #6, too much foreground, and what's up with the white things on the concrete?

And a sidenote: Welcome to the forums. Don't let anyones criticisms (even if they are harsh) get to you. Take what they say and learn from it. There are lots of great photographers on POTN, I'm not in that number but, learn from them. Hah

For your next project, how about a series on the graffiti truck in your backgrounds? I've seen plenty of Subarus.

Cars are all about reflections, both good & bad. It's starting to look OK in #6, but just because that lens captures all that area doesn't mean that you need to include it all in the image. Crop the bottom off almost up to the tires & see what you think.
