I feel like the empty black space at the top is a little much and a bit distracting. Love the vibrant red on the helmet though!

Nice image, though I think many voters might struggle to recognise what it is (many people don't ride bicycles). I like the lighting, and the arrangement of the helmet. The space above it is too large for my liking, and the border doesn't really add to the image significantly enough to risk using it in a DPC challenge (many voters dislike it - though I don't think it warrants any deductions in this instance).

The photo is excellent. However, I could not tell what your photo was of and I didn't know off-hand what 'Giro' was. I had to google it to find out. I think that's kind of a bad idea for such an awesome photo. I may be wrong but I think that will keep you from getting a ribbon: unless everybody who doesn't know what it is looks it up for themselves. Good luck to you, I'm going with a 9 and not a 10 because you caused me so much trouble! }:>) Not really: 10!

Yep. Gotta wear them! I like the lowish light here - very good at bringing out the product name. I wonder if non-cyclists will recognize this for what it is.

I can tell that it is a helmet, but if I was just glancing at it, I never would have noticed it. The colors are a little dark, and I can't see enough of the helmet.

I wish I could see more of the helmet instead of the black background.

Not sure yet about the crop but the light is good and the borders work well.

I like the focus concentrated on the brand name but overall the image is too dark to be of interest. 5/10
