The first photo has a decent angle. However the background is too busy and distracting. The angle of the second photo makes it look like a snap shot. Unless you get higher than usual (ladder, etc..) or get really low it will tend to look like a snapshot.

Good first try though and keep working at it. Check out some of the threads here and try to copy them.

PS - this should be in the transportation section, not the motorsports section.

If I might add, shoot at a shallower DOF, longer FL, CPL to control where the reflections are, lighting if you have it

Did you notice how the darker background in #2 lets the car pop out more? See the links in my Sig, and...
