"Off to work." is a wonderful entry into the Pick Two Challenge. I think it is so great when you exceeds your expectations of the shot you have entered.

The image is obviously very well put together. Black and white was an excellent choice, to enhance all of those key features, like the rings on the shoes and accent letters on the bike. The composition is excellent, the shot feel complete. I think the black border is a nice addition. I really can see anything I would change, you just did an excellent job.

Congrats on the Top Ten finish, especially since this is your first official member challenge! Your wife is an awesome support my husband has to pretty much be dragged kicking and screaming into any shot.

Several people had this idea, but I think this one is the best executed. Perfect in B&W, perfect style of shoe. Very good!

Best of the bike/heels shots... IMO. I am not sure about including a foot in the shoe as this is not one of the items to use... but very good work.....

I think this shot will do very well on dpc...excellent clarity and contrast...the shoes are a bit average, but that's just a matter of taste

I love the black&white treatment here.

Wow - those are some platforms!!! Love the high contrast. Interesting. One distracting thing are the letters TR on the bike. I know that's part of it, but I think if you cloned it out, it'd be just a touch more artful. 8
