Photography tip: Put the cars in the foreground and the pictures in the background and it'll look more realistic.

Here's a crude example:

Got it. I'm having some technical issues with lighting, background, focus, and the skill of the photographer.

I think it's cute how the cars are sitting at odd angles on top of the backgrounds - it gives the pics a goofy charm.
