Composition would be stronger if the shoes were seperated slightly. At first glance it just looks like one shoe. Also a small point but, they look more like: 'resting away from the bike' than 'dying to ride'. Wouldn't they be clipped into the pedals? Nice use of depth of field to pick out the subjects.

I think what seperates this from the other studio type shots is the wheel in the background. The curve of the shoes mimic the curve of the tire - interesting and well done in that regard. The clarity is spot on. 8

i like how the shoes are in focus and the bicycle wheel is not in focus but visible. i also like how the shoe is so sharp.

shoe could use being cleaned up and glare is distracting

Nice sharp pic w/ good light. Colors are a bit dull--go for more contrast next time. Wheel should be a little more to the right, I think. It makes the pic crowded and off-balence.
