    First thing I notice is that you need to turn your wheels the other way. We want to see the wheel...not the tire.

    I haven't actually checked any of the pictures full size yet, but try to avoid anything sticking up behind the car. Trees grow out of the ground, not the car.

    Watch for shadows and how the light falls on your car.. being black.. it can either make or break the pic.. and try to get different angles that you don't normally see..

    Watch the space and balance of the photo; think about what is near it and the 'weight' it puts on the car. Odd placement can result in other objects taking attention away from your car or the viewer looking at the ground near it from too much space. I know it's hard to explain but.. for example in one picture there is a lot of concrete below the car visible in the photo and it makes me look at the ground instead of the car for some reason. Just like in film - you have to give objects or people proper 'headroom' in pictures or it looks odd.

    Some of the photos are really nice! I like the car a lot.

    I noticed that some of them do have a really strong glare of the ground taking away from it.... but you learn as you go I guess...

    is the location ok for these pics though?

    thanks for complimenting my car though man

    It is better than showing the tread.

    Absolutely ZERO good scenery for a picture in Oklahoma, and to clarify that further I mean NONE

    There have been several pics I have taken thinking it looked good and got home to upload it only to find it sucked. I can usually take 30 pics and get 4 good ones, if I am lucky

    I like the one with the billboard in the back ground... although I think you could have
    thrown on some tire dressing first... maybe a little buffing would help too.

    well man, you said be honest and im gonna, i think you have a clean car to start with but black is tuff, i think some chrome zr1's, clear corners, take off the night shades, and lower it a bit, and remove the ground effects, i think you will have a bad ass ride
