thanks to all for the great comments here.
I readily admit the photo has a "busy" background. Walmart has the odd policy about letting you take things without paying for them. :-)
I took the picture with the bike on the rack. It was cropped to emphasize the one bike as well as possible. I am learning plenty about presentation here.

They sure didn't make them like this when I was a kid. well, at least I didn't have one. I like the different angle you used, without having to photograph the entire bicycle, you got the point across very nicely. Definately depicts childhood. Lighting is great. Good luck in the challenge.

Fantastic colours and close crop gives great shapes. Does remind me of that excitement and pride in a truly beloved toy - one which you just so awed to get, and thankful for. One that you remember even in adulthood.

Excellent focus, and great colours. I find the background details a little busy though.

Nice perspective. Very colorful closeup look at a very ordinary child's item.

great shot and composition

I like the title and the angle. The background is distracting though (especially above the rim)

As a young boy, for me, a new bicycle was one of the greatest things that could ever happen :) Excellent photo :) = 8 - jmsetzler

Nice colors & textures.

Nice. I like especially the warm reflections in the fork of the bike. Originally wanted to lose the ad copy in the spokes, but I guess that drives home NEW BIKE, huh? Good sharp still life. Good title. 6, just-married

Nice bike wheel. It's a very good picture, but being in the store leaves me wanting...The photo is GREAT (maybe a little too close?), challenge is met.
How about 7? Swash
