Cool cars!
This might just be my personal preference, but I would have stepped back a little or zoomed out to include more of the background. The cars seem to take up too much of the space in the photos.

I am by no means a professional photographer, so don't take my comments to seriously!

I like your perspectives and proportions of your subjects. If you're shooting cars, then I like them about where you have them.

Is there something that you'd like to change or improve?

Experiment with different focal lengths and different perspectives is all I'd suggest.

Wow! Those look really good to me, I like them. Only thing I could think of is maybe just very slightly zoom out to show just a tad more background. Other than that, fantastic! Editing is pretty good too.

I like the E55 shot very much; if any nitpick it would be for a smaller aperture / longer exposure to have a larger area of focus (so the front of the car as it goes away from the lens plane would be sharper).

X5 shot is good too, as is the old buggy thing.

Last shot - really nice looking GT-R, but the composition for me doesn't work.

Thanks for your feedback: much appreciated. How do you like your 6D?

Love the 6D. For what I shoot it is perfect.

The only thing I am a bit annoyed with, not a big deal, but in nearly 2 years since it came out, Canon hasn't updated the EOS Remote app and there is no native iPad app with better resolution.
