I prefer the second of the three Cayman S images. The balance is much better than the one of the rear - there simply aren't enough lines/curves to pull my attention, and the sky is mildly overexposed. For the back end of the car, here I'd suggest going closer to eye level than a low perspective so you can see the tail and then a bit of the roof to pull you into the frame. What the first image has are lines from the front and along the bonnet to the windscreen. It could also do with straightening.

With your very first image, the "ghosting" effect can be enhanced further by setting a longer exposure on a tripod. I'm just wondering as you took that at 1/5, f4.5 at 34mm, suggesting it was handheld. It's not a bad attempt if handheld, but the ghosting that you've caught is more handshake than motion blur. Handshake can be an effective effect as you've shown, and doesn't always ruin an image; I like it.

Thanks Ed for your input, when i was shooting the car i was noticed later on the computer two things: the car was dirty and you dont really photograph a dirty car. The second thing was what you mentioned the over exposure on the right hand side of the image, I tried to fix this in post processing but didnt really get anywhere.

Yeah it was hand held, i must say that it was not on purpuse that i was trying to go for this effect, the sun had already set and i didnt really think about it was busy talking to a few freinds when one suggest, hey grab a shot of me walking away and i thought yeah why not that could be intresting. Given the enviroment and my freinds are getting tired of me stopping all time to take a picture, so i placed the camera on P and fired away. Took two shots this one was the one that came out the best. I like the feeling to the image, its seems to me as if the subject is lonley in a busy world...a bit depressing. Note the pony tail he has :P
