Greetings from the Critique Club.

Composition: The composition is your major let down here. You have cropped harshly over the tyre and left a vacant area on the right of the image making the bike point out of the image instead of the preferred into the image.

Technical: Focus and tones are good and the selective desaturation is selective but on topic.

Overall:Try a lower angle and maybe from a different point of view for more points.

Great job!! Myself...I think I might have had the 'inner' bike have the color... might have been more striking! But great job nonetheless. (7)

A nice image let down, IMHO, by the cropping of the rear wheel of the bike. I would have liked to see the whole bike. A minor point for such an image.
