There are some beautiful cars being submitted but most background and picture taking skills suck big time.
How hard is it to find a pleasant or unique place to use as a background? Taking a picture in a parking lot, in the street in front of the house or in the driveway ain't gonna win you ROTM unless the car can overcome the distractions.
Take the position of the sun or nearby lighting into account when positioning the car.
Think about the angles you are using when positioning yourself and the camera you are using. You don't want to be so wide angle that the background content distracts. Keep in mind that the car is the subject and should occupy at least 65-80% of the frame.
Put a little thought into it if you want to seriously compete!!!
