I dont think the last one was so bad. If the build wasn't such a mishmash of colors if would look nicer :wink:

rule of thirds is always a good thing to study too - its a good way to start making photos look better!

Good start. As with bikes though i'd try to use blandish backgrounds even if your going to wack the aperature open to blur it. The rule of 3rds is the basis for a good photo. Black and white still looks good if you've got some nice shiny bits in there!
