Good work! If I have one suggestion it would be to ease up on the vignette... it appears you're adding it in post and I think it's killing off some of the shadow detail. Just an opinion... I could be wrong. :)

Like the shots but personally would prefer to see less post processing on them, specifically the vignetting.

I think that is my favorite in this set.

Noted. First time trying the vignetting out and I admit that I may have been a little aggressive with it.

Yeah, some solid shots, but the processing is definitely too strong. If you are going to add a vignette in post, at least make it look like optical vignetting like it came from the lens, not some dark haze that surrounds the car.

Honestly, I think you are using the vignetting as a crutch though. You are using it to bring visual emphasis to the car in the shot. Why not use composition and lighting in the scene from the camera to make strong visual images? Yes, it is much harder than making the subject of your image the only bright thing, but if you can bring that same kind of focus to the subject without post processing tricks, your images will be so much stronger. You've got a good eye, keep flexing those muscles.

Your comments are appreciated.

I do my best to try and compose strong images and to use creative lighting.

This was the first time I have really used post-processing this heavily.

The Robertson GT shot is making the rounds on the internet. Probably my favorite picture that I've taken to date.
