Alright guys made my first set of pics. If any of your photographers can critique my shots so I know what to improve or try different as this is my first attempt in FM6. And if I can get your opinion which you like the best to submit to the contest that be great too. I'm leaning towards #3 or #4.

Some great shots all round Bickel!
Personally I would add a little bit more aperture to shots #1, #2 and #5 to slightly blur the background while keeping the the car nice and sharp. Possibly higher shutter speed setting to convey more motion & speed in some of the other shots.
But it all depends on what you are trying to capture and show off e.g. car within an elegant scenery settings, car driving fast with a good sense of speed with only the car in focus and high shutter setting etc.
Thanks guys for the advice and pointers. Really had fun with some of the new tracks and seems the lighting models changed some so need to learn some of the tricks (oh and night pictures!!) I will have some more sets taking shortly to share.

I like the 1st one bet overall
Number 3 for color "exposure" value but something off on focus - but the pict is great like a real car picture
#4 I think is best composition and love the reflections on the car - I would think i would want to "brighten" it expose it so colors pop in shadows and the light to the right and edge overexposes - like when you take real picture its almost always best to take in the shade and then expose it and get the colors to pop like your eye sees them in the sun.
I like your use of Speed (not too much - make rims blur but have substance) but I think I would use more aperture then you have -even when you are showing those nice vistas - Thats just me - I've never won any awards like you though so I would say go with your gut as your excellent photographer. Just giving my opinions because you asked.
@pervasive: First thank you for taking the time to give your advice and tips. It always helps improve as what looks good to me can be improved still. I think it is ultimately impossible to take a "perfect" picture as there is always something that can be changed.
Again thanks for the feedback and look forward to sharing more here.
