Last weekend the weather was pretty crappy, but there were some mean clouds rolling in. I was able to go out there before the rain hit to capture a few shots of my 1999 BMW M3. Let me know what you guys think!

Full shoot can be found HERE (external link)

Any chance of getting rid of the epic power lines?

I don't mind the power lines in #1. They sort of fit the mood, & it sure does pop out against those clouds, doesn't it?

I think the power lines kind of frame the car a little and add a little bit of drama to the photo. :D

#5 wasn't cropped actually as this is how I shot it. But I see what you're saying.

#1 is great. Power lines look good and some nice texture.

They all look good (even tough I'm not a fan of the JDM tilt).

I like the power lines in #4. They give the photo a feeling of depth.

Contrast between the car and the sky in the first pic is awesome!

That first pic is great with the sky contrasting with the car. Really adds to the photo
