                          [brag] I don't think parking on grass is always a bad thing. I took these pictures of a Maserati GranTurismo on the grass, and I think the grass is partially what makes the picture so great! It really depends on the color of the car as to whether or not it'll look good on grass.[/brag]

                          These were some nice tips though. My biggest tip is to never cut the nose or rear end off the car when you take pics. I hate seeing that.

                          A tip I never have the patience to follow is to try not to get bystanders in your photos, they're distracting, and unless they are gorgeous women, they can ruin the picture.

                              I know this is a thread from the dead, but since Sleeper has posted something new here, I'd be interested to hear Rolo's and everyone else's critiques of the new photo, to see if they agree with the things I'd suggest.

                              I'm no expert, but here is what I would tell you to do next time to make this a killer photo:

                              1) Center your subject.

                              2) Position the car so the city skyline forms the backdrop, instead of having the roof of the structure below be the background.

                              3) Angle the car in the other direction, so that the front end and grill area get better lighting. Right now, it's too dark -- the shadows overpower the front of the car.

                              4) In addition to centering your subject, try to "frame" it in your head, and set up the shot so you can crop it in Photoshop to remove unnecessary items in the background, like the neighboring roof, the buttress stub of the wall, etc.

                              5) And I can already hear Rolo saying this -- if you can't avoid the parking lot lines, use Photoshop to remove them!
