Hind sight is 20/20, I wish I had dragged the line out of the background of the image. Any other thoughts at how this could have been executed differently.

It would be nice if there was more sand background above the focal piece but that may not have been an option depending on what was there to shoot.
I'm not a huge HDR fan but I have found that rusty metal can make really cool HDR images if you have the software. Something about rust that looks pretty cool when processed as an HDR image.

The whole car has plenty of character. My only thoughts would have been to focus on one port of the car, a close up of the headlights or grill maybe. OR compose the shot with the whole vehicle, an angle of about 45 degrees from a corner is generally appealing.
Examples of what I tried to explain above...
Yeah, its kind of like cutting out 1/2 of your great aunt Sue from the family portrait or something....
I took a bunch of pictures of my girl friend on the north rim of the Grand Canyon this past weekend and was wondering what the collective thoughts on them are? I'm only posting these 4, as they are 4 that I don't quite like, but can't put my finger on what I should have done differently. Looking for advice on what I should have done framing wise as well as editing before I spend lots of time on the rest of the images from that trip.
These two I did black and white because they were taken in the Red Rocks of Norther Pariah river, and it gave such a red hue to everything that it drove me crazy, even after playing with the red Luminance and Saturation.
For me, number 2 has to much distraction with the twin crooked trees. For me at least this one comes down to composition.
Number 3 has serious potential IMO and I would love to play with the original. I basically feel that the B&W needs tweeked to pull out the contrast. but I can also see a selective color option happening here.
Number 4 has great composition imo but I can see some tones being adjusted along with a very very light rectangular vignette. another I would love to tweek a bit
IDK maybe something like this for the 4th image. Hope ya dont mind, grabbed the last shot. quick edit, post here and delete from my comp
