I was going more for framing and distance from car than anything else. I'm trying to work on that before anything else.

Why? Why are you practicing taking mediocre photos?

Center the subject and get closer. THEN work on moving your subject around the frame for "artistic perspective"

It's not "wrong" to put your subject off center

The part you have to be able to work with are the surroundings.



This is a REALLY old photo of mine. It's not the best but it's very dynamic because of the architecture, the contrast of the black car and the deep blue sky. Your eye isn't necessarily drawn to the hangar in the background, but it clearly takes up the majority of the photo.

Once you learn how to work with your subjects, you can start getting fancy.

For instance, when the car is the subject of the photo you want to show as much detail in the car as possible. Avoid including distracting backgrounds.



This photo for instance showcases the car really well, but I should have noticed the big red DOOR in the background and moved to a different spot.

The nicest thing I can say is that your camera lens is dirty. The left side of every one of those photos is blurry.
