This is my first attempt at doing a car shoot and would like to get some feedback from all of you with experience.

Good start but personally the HDR attempt has resulted in the reflections being distracting and the shot after is a bit too soft/hazy for my liking. Mix the two and reckon you have a nice shot. I can see a few angles being missed but the main one would have been a rolling shot from the rear quarter.

Other than that, I would say not bad at all. Maybe wait till later in the day since lunchtime is where the sun is at its highest point.

Great first try but be careful placing a black car against dark windows and alleys. You lost parts of the car against the windows and the whole back end in the alley.

Unusual pipes growing out of the air cleaner in 2 & 3. . .keep an eye on the background as others have said.

Nice ride BTW. . .

I would get more engine shots, speaking as a car builder it's one of my favorite things to look at. Sure it might be a generic cliche small block. But they're still interesting :D

Very nice processing...like the first 3 ...not big on the B&W or profile orientation views however. These s/b about the car not the background.

I had to merge your threads because IMAGE POSTING RULES don't allow duplicate threads. Some exceptions to the duplicate posting rule are group threads, like "Show Me...", "Post your best...", equipment reviews, Tutorials, etc.

Nice ride. See the links in my Sig, and...

No1 is excellent - I thought we we're onto a winning thread there, but the rest don't match it imo :(

The watermark could do with more thought to it imo, especially the green version

nice looking car, maybe turn down the HRD setting a bit, I like the look a lot but it's a little harsh

Just honest CC.

The rolling shot looks nice. I can tell it was overcast by just the shadows on the car, without having to see the sky. The background works though, you might even play with shadows/highlights a small amount to try and bring back some of the shadow areas.

The other shots have too much background, not enough car. Except for 2 + 3, which IMO have too much vignetting. The vignetting is all in personal preference though, some might like it....

I agree with above comments. Watch the background and work on the watermark. For your first attempt I'd say you're well on your way.
