Was the white one the one with the wood grain engine pieces parked by the old red Honda?

I still like the picture, it has a good sense of speed but it would be so killer if that car was sharp!

I think the processing is quite nice on all three of these, but the composition is a bit odd. The first one has the car pretty much dead center in the frame, the second one has the car just a bit left of center, and the third one has the car a bit too much into the corner. I also probably would've had the car pointed inward in the third photo as well.

As far as lenses go, assuming your kit lens is the 18-55mm, then you're really missing a telephoto. Since you're shooting Canon, I very VERY much recommend the 135mm É2 L if you can save up for it. It is a fantastic lens and if you ever decide to go full frame, it'll shine even more. If you want something with a bit more range but will won't totally break the bank, it's hard to go wrong with the Canon 70-200mm É4 L.

pretty new to photography and editing, took this shot the other day. not the ideal location but we were just chilling out and I was messing around with my camera, critique's welcome
Definitely not the best location, and I would've turned the wheels to face the camera. Overall, it looks quite underexposed and it lacks contrast. The image just looks like it has a washed out grey cast over the whole thing. I think it could be a little sharper as well.

Haha nice DOF on this one! I'd probably bring it down a little in the frame so it wasn't in the middle so much though.

Nope, the white one is owned by Kenji from Team Menace, and they were on the other side near the front doors.

I like the wide angle you used on this, but the truck looks like it's leaning toward the right a tiny bit. I also wish that bush wasn't behind the truck on the passenger side.

Not sure why, but each of these photos seems a bit soft overall. Your rolling shot isn't quite in focus, and the third shot probably would've been better with a bit more blurry foreground and not so much trees in the background. Your second shot is the strongest of the three, but I would've cropped out a little more away from the right side.

No need to be scared, this is all about constructive criticism, not simply sharing photos. It's the best way to improve your techniques!
