Thanks! The only thing I've changed were the springs, they are the H&Rs. The rear sits perfect but like most have said, I still wish the front was a little lower. So eventually might do BC Racing coilovers.

Lol. I don't mind the coupes. Their body size and shape makes them look like they should be rwd. I think his car is done tastefully except for the red stickers.

Thanks Mykal. Yeah I'm a novice but really enjoying it. Wednesday I'm getting my roof wrapped gloss black. But after that will be RotoFab and catted longtubes. With a real tune.

I like the vette front wheel photo, and your sig photo, nice composition.

only thing I would say is the whites with your car are blown out and the darks are too dark, maybe just how you processed the photo. IMO I would be ok with the blacks and whites being totally white and black in the rest of the photo, just not the car as its the subject. but that's just my opinion.

also the second photo you can notice some sharpening in the wheels and where the body panels come together, just watch for that on straight edges that may look too sharp and create aliasing.

these are just some tips, but great photos.

Yeah I'm still trying to get use to balancing it out. Where it's not to dark or to light. Used a friends Nikon and I'm use to canon so I wasn't really used to it. I need to learn some more tricks though.
