Cheers shiuming, any tips to get them better at all
Try without flash, and stand on a tripod/some boxes or even shoot slightly earlier in the day for more natural light (but still dark-ish for that moody effect), because the flash glare shows up as spot reflections on the paint, totally washes out the number plate (which is designed to be highly reflective so no surprises there!) and also exposes the inevitable brown gunk inside wheels and arches, and on tyres especially if they've not been dressed with tyre gel (tyres only look good under intense/direct light when brand new and dressed, as they have a colouring agent in them which makes them nice and black, this wears off over time). Direct flash makes most subjects look a tad unnatural at the best of times. Just play around with different settings and angles and see what you come up with [:)]

Here are some I made earlier:

Whereabouts are you located? Looks vaguely familiar. Certainly good background for photos with the riverside flats and cranes across the water.

shiuming thanks for the tips, my brother has told me to do a search to see your other pictures casue he said you have done amazing pictures. Thanks for the tips.

The pictures wer taken on the waterfront in glasgow on the clyde at the new development being built by Gal etc. do you know it.

yeh the wheels are on alot of sport cars etc, i thought if i was getting new wheels why not push the boat out a lil bit, only problem was the bank balance started to get swallowed up leaving me with nothing for a while lol

Like the wheels however you have highlighted the small discs behind them.  I think those wheels deserve huge discs behind, so time for a big brake upgrade.
