great colors! a tighter crop on the top would have been more apealing.

Superb idea, well composed.
Minus the reflector and with the base hidden..it would be perfection for me..9

good effort many would not have thought of the idea to use a white tire...good job, but the colors hurt my eyes :)

good idea, but I think you did not execute it very wel. I see some spots (footprint?)on the background and it is not flat. You can see the "thing" where the wheel is standing on. I am sure that you would get a better rating if you payed more attention to that. Sorry for my bad english.

I'm still trying to puzzle this one out...i can see how the three colours give white on the wheel but how about the shadows? The ugly stand is a bit distracting and I wonder if croping out the large area of out of focus shadows at the bottom would have made a stronger pic?

interesting compostion. I wish I knew how you did it. Nice take on the challenge. The colors and the white wheel work well together. 10

It took me a while to decide that I liked this photo, the only thing I would have done differently is to rotate the wheel so the reflector is at the top, and the stem down toward the bottom, but that is minor, also, is that something wrapped in a paper towel under the wheel.

Nice, but there is some grainyness in the background.

interesting shot...
very very vividly coloured... too bad it's slightly skewed to the left... but nice, very nice idea... it creates the impression of a parachute, maybe a more creative title the next time?
