    Some constructive criticism
    1-3, the lighting is wrong.
    1st - Complex foreground takes the attention away from the car. Crop it down a bit. Also I'd reduce the yellow in the photo.
    2nd - too much flash lighting in the foreground again, causing an imbalance in the photo.
    3rd - I can see what you were trying to achieve. next time try from a lower angle, and zoom in a bit more, trying to cut out as much bright background light as possible.
    4th - Good shot. Crop it, decrease the highlights a little, bit more contrast and black level.
    5th - Bit more saturation, bit more black, bit more contrast.

    Hope that helps mate. You're doing good.

    thanks heaps mate.
    yeah they were all just spur of the moment things, as we were driving past was just like, oh yeah will take a photo there, and it was freezing so we didnt set up well, or try as much as i would have liked.

    first 4 are very slightly editted, just a lil contrast and saturation (and at 1 in the mornin)
    last is just as it was taken.

    i will try mess around with the 4th, i like that one, we got a couple more at different angles.
    gah i always forget, should have tried to make a hdr of the 4th one
    will try

    that was a good critique, Pauly - even to the level where I, as a layperson could understand.

    Good shots still though Shay. To me 1&3 emote chic, though with warmth & a sense of familiarity (probably the Vec :P) 2 Has the contrast between the harsh blinding white and the black background with the warming ambers. 4 is probably my least favorite as it doesn't say anything to me except "here's a Vectra and BMW in a parking lot" Lastly, 5 could be interpreted as "the thin line of civilization floating in between the darkness of the abyss" (nah actually I tried too hard to get that interpretation, it looks like a city skyline which, fair enough, has been done a lot).

    Anyway now you can contrast the uninformed critique of mine with the pro critique of Pauly and you'll be set. (nah actually just listen to pauly :P)
