Well observed, and I like the compositions.

1. Nice and simple yet with different places to look at. Shows hardly anything of the car but captures it. I like the square crop.

2. Ditto but I'd probably like to see the bumper horizontal. Rotating it a little would allow the dark under the 'eyebrow' to become the top boundary rather than that little bit of light that's currently there.

3. Again captures the essence while showing little - and another interesting crop.

4. Captures the texture and reflections well. Composition-wise I wonder whether there should be a little more room around the radiator cap, but not really a problem

I like those!

Thanks, Will. Pleased you like them.
I enjoyed taking them but had an even better time playing with them on Elements 9.
(Pleased with the border in 1., matching the door gap!)

...& thanks, K.M., for your thoughtful comments.
I have, on reflection, subsequently rotated 2 as you've suggested. Great minds.....! I also, to a lesser degree, rotated 3 to the right to level-up the main chrome/black line under the light clusters.

Really like the ones you've re-done, and No. 4 of the original set as well.

I really like he first one, the third one could possibly do with a bit cropped off the left hand side?

Many thanks, all, for your most encouraging remarks.

I thought, Aliengrove, that it was difficult to choose a crop-line on the left. If I lost the two door handles (& the wheelarch), it would leave an ugly chrome trimline diagonal, which wasn't really going anywhere or doing anything.....?

The first one and it's frame is excellent.
