I always find it difficult to 'See' the shot when it comes to the close up detail shots of cars and bikes.

I look at some of the great shots on here of all these cars and bikes and say to myself "What a great shot; I don't think I would have ever 'seen' that.

Anyways, here is a recent attempt.

Nothing special.  My mother-in-law is selling this bike and I decided to be a little creative with it.  I recently bought the 50 1.8 so I could learn to shoot with a shallow depth of field, which I tried to employ here.

I would appreciate any feedback to improve the results. 

I'll start with my own critique.

I have a bunch of reflections in the shots - me, the neighbor's house, trees, etc.  Is this something where you pull out a diffuser, etc to block the reflection - or pick a different location?

I'm guessing reflectors would enhance some lighting.

I'm not thrilled with the bokeh on this lens, but then it's a cheap lens so I wasn't expecting the world.

I'm wondering if I am picking the best point of focus in the shots and the best perspective, in terms of making it interesting.  I know there is no right or wrong answers in the world of creative, but there are maybe best practices.

Having a shallow depth of field for OOF is something I never had before, and I really like playing around with it.  For these types of shots I think it makes them much more interesting.
