    I Love Hobbies
    Two of my favorite hobbies are Mustangs and Photography. Only been taking photos seriously for a few months so C&C is always welcome.

    They're alright. I don't like the second one because the foreground takes up too much space and emphasis. The last one is makes me want to look more at the horizon than the car itself.

    Those rims are pretty nice, turn them so they face the camera. That will give the car a little more style.

    Sounds like we have a lot in common! Nice vert and pics. Can you give some specs on the car?

    Thanks for taking the time to critique, comments are always welcome and I'm always looking for ways to improve.

    To be honest still going through the car. I picked up Wednesday for a great price and the guy I picked it up from didn't have a clue and had only owned it 6 weeks. There's another story about that, that I will save for another post. HA!

    As for the car '01 Cobra (40K miles), known mods so far are:
    - BBK Intake
    - 4 point strut tower brace (Looks to be Steeda)
    - Welded in full length subframe (pretty wild design, still trying to figure out who's they are)
    - Rear shock tower brace
    - Shifter (Believed to be Pro 5.0)
    - FR500 10.5" rear rims w/ 315's 8" front rims w/265's
    - 4.10 gears
    - Saleen wing
    - Eibach Springs

    4th one is definitely the best. The two shot with the graffiti walls in the back are too busy. The graffiti takes your eye off the car. 2nd shot has grass in the way of the car. Last shot has a bad background and the composition is wierd. Great ideas. Keep up the good work. Nice ride btw.

    I have to agree I think the 4th one is the best because it just highlights the car the most, and I assume that is what you are trying to do, however composition wise I think it would have benefited from the car being closer to the camera, and with the car turned slightly more anti clockwise with the wheels turned slightly towards the same direction, and if you have any off camera flashes it would be great for highlighting details on the car, such a snoot or zoomed flash focusing on the two wheels in frame, and maybe one flash firing across at the side of the car facing the camera, giving a nice dramatic shadow on the opposing side.
