LOL!! Thanks everyone...

Wouldn't have a clue as to what to suggest I'm afraid. For me it comes down to 'seeing' the finished image in my head before taking the shot. Light, reflections, shadow, shape but most of all, wherever possible, capturing something about a particular vehicle (car, bike, boat WHY) that says 'I am a...' (Lotus Elise for example) without showing the entire vehicle necessarily.

If someone has some ideas for some reading material, I'd love to see them.

EDIT: Thanks for the pointer at Tim's PF. Excellent!

There's a four page article in the March 2008 issue of Digital Camera magazine by Tim Wallace.
