Nice SS! I used to hang around Waterford a lot, but only on weekends. ;)
#1 is a bit dark & the tires are lost in the shadows. Try Adjustment Layers to fix exposure in small areas of the shot:
Airport runway shoot

Nice light on #2. I'd have shot it later. See the "Tips" in my Sig, and...

I am using CS4. The shadows under the car is my biggest problem.

If you are shooting in RAW I believe there is a slider you can use called "Fill Light" Try that out to reduce the darkness of shadows. Don't use that tool too much though because as you add Fill Light, you decrease contrast.

If Photoshop CS4 doesn't have the Fill Light slider, Lightroom does. Get Lightroom if you don't already have it, it is an amazing program.
