These are beautiful shots. The only recognizable reflection I see of (you???)is in the blue radiator surround in shot three. I'm forever being critiqued about that--so just passing it along.

Love the blue coupe with the clouds on the fender, nice click. wonderful presentation of details with these images.

About your reflection in the images, that is really someone just telling you they have spent time looking at your work. that is a plus side of a critique.
looking back and finding the new.

You can use longer lenses to eliminate reflections, but then the perspective changes, and shooting car events it is difficult if not impossible to distance yourself from the car without having a myriad of distractions come between you and your subject, live people, other cars, and what not.

I've attached a longer lens shot of my old 1992 Miata taken at a local park shortly after sunset when there was no one around to interfere with my shots.

joso iii your b+w shot with reflection is a classic. what you said in your post to another photo I now say to you. What I realy love is the reflection of a modern car in the bumper of a classic, although I am not a fan usualy of the combined b+w with a bit colorazied teqnique, in this phot you might want to colorize just the modern cars reflection to further enhance the contrast between vehicles. just a sugestion even just the way your photo is I would be proud to hang it on my wall. :thumbup:

Spectacular works of art... and I don't just mean the vehicles!

Not sure why, but the one of the steering wheel is my favorite of the set... can't say it's color because they're ALL amazing in the color arena.

Maybe it's the deliberate off-kilter angle... that the steering wheel isn't perfectly centered or perfectly contained in the photo. There's some symbolism speaking to me in there... wheel sets the direction the car goes; therefore, since it isn't fully "contained" within the photo... the driver's wander lust can't be "contained" either!?

Or... maybe... I over think things and need to go eat dinner *snickers*

These left me breathless... and ready to go for a ride! ;)
