First, thanks everyone who commented on my photos one way or another. I especially appreciate everyone who took up for my photos.

I agree. I always found that some people in this thread are being pretty harsh with some guys, where on the other hand there were a lot of other pics here that deserved the critics more.
I think he did a good job on the black car, I just guess it would have looked better without the open hood. Just my 2 cents.

Sometimes, "teachers" are hardest on the best "students." If someone posts a snapshot (as I did) that has very few "redeeming qualities," then it might not be worth offering constructive/instructive criticism. However if a particular shot has potential but is lacking a certain "something" that could make it better, then perhaps comment is meant in a positive manner.
davidfarina and runnunmann: I could be wrong, but I don't think PhotosGuy meant to be harsh by his comments. I think he truly was trying to give praise on one photo and constructive criticism on the others. Sometimes that can sound or feel harsh. I don't take it personal, I'm confident and proud of my photos and I've heard much worse.

If you failed than you failed and the absolutely best thing you can do is accept that truth.
The costumer was happy coz they dont know better. You are here to share your work with the best and get critiqued by the best. Small details will get noticed and commented on and it'll only make you better if you listen
Word fail is not harsh at all imo.
Anyway still good looking pictures and cars. We all fail here and there
PJ mak: Thanks. I'll reiterate that I don't believe it was a fail. To me a fail would be something that looks like a snap shot or iPhone photo. I do agree it's not perfect, but it's way better than a lot of people can do. That being said, I do appreciate any constructive criticism or praise that comes my way. I constantly try to get better, and these things help. I gives me something to think about while photographing and editing.
