Hey everyone, here are some shots I took to a VW GTI. This year I want to make some car photoshoots, so here is the first one of the year.

It may be my monitor at work, but the first image looks a little overexposed, other than that looks good.
The second image would have been my favorite but you cut off a slither of the drivers side of the car? I believe it works sometimes to cut off parts of the subject if done properly, usually in larger chunks than what you did there, but cutting off just a small portion it makes it appear as though you didn't quite center up like you wanted to.
the third image is good, but again, possibly a little overexposed but could just be my work monitor.

White cars are as tough as black ones in their own way.
My biggest problem with it is that it's ALL WHITE! Look at MHO's shot here: https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=753614
See the difference?

Yes, they are a little overexposed, but I couldn't do much because the sun was intense :S. And yes, now I think that I cut the wrong part of the car. Maybe it'd have been better if I cut the car by the half. Thanks :D

Yees, that's a huge problem :S. I see the difference, and I think it'd easier to take photos of the car at night and not during the afternoon. Thanks for the info ;)
