No, not at all. I appreciate all the comments. I actually took a bunch of shots. These just happened to be the one's I liked because I had a lot of lighting problems. I try to keep the rule of thirds in mind. The only problem with your suggestion for the 1st picture is that one, I only have 1 lens at the moment. It will be a few months before I can get more.
And the second is that if you saw where I was taking the photo, you'd think I was nuts. I'm on top of a fence pillar with the tripod extended as tall it will go. Behind me, about an inch is a drop off into a rainwater overflow stream 12-15 feet below (dry atm). I tried to put each car in the corner of the grid when it came to the 3rd. So, you're saying it didn't work quite well? I had a hard time shuffling cars in that manner so any input is appreciated.
