|Greetings from the Critique Club!
First of all, I am not an expert on bokeh, so take my comments for what they are worth.
I do see the bokeh in your shot, but I find the lighting and the glare from the center of the wheel to be more distracting than complimentary to the subject of the photo...the tire. The tire itself does seem in focus to me, but I am not really interested in the subject.
I try (not successfully sometimes) to make each challenge photo something that would be interesting even outside of the challenge subject. This shot, IMO, shows that you can create the bokeh effect, but the glare and the subject matter make the overall photo less interesting to me, and not something I would spend much time looking at normally.
Looking at this a little more, I think I might have liked it better if the background did not have the light color in the lower left corner. The glare of the metal spokes might be more appealing if the whole area was darker, like the top part. For some reason, that area seems more artistic to me. Perhaps the difference between the light/dark areas there make it appear a bit too busy?
I really like the simplicity of everyday items photographed in a simple way, and perhaps this was the intent. I think a few changes in lighting and background may have moved the interest factor up for your shot.
I hope this has been helpful for you! Good luck with your 2005 challenges!
