Some really good advice Martinsr. As a photographer for over 15 years, I agree completly with you. I'm currently working for an auto trader type magazine, and you wouldn't believe some of the shots I see every day. One thing that should be taken into consideration above anything else is "What am I trying to show with this photo?" If you are looking to get a nice profile shot to show the cars stance, PLEASE dont park in front of a telephone pole. It looks like a really wierd growth coming out of the roof. Also the angle that you use makes a big difference in the overall composition of the shot. Try shooting a few from eye level, then get down on one knee and do a few more. The difference will amaze and mystify you. All in all, just get out there and keep shooting. Trust me it'll get better.
