    First of all, I am wondering what it is and what you are trying to portray. The pictures themselves do not tell me anything about whatever you are photographing.

    Secondly, your lighting is off in both pictures. In the first picture, the product fades too much to the dark (including the company name). In the second picture, you have odd highlights and reflections, one can hardly see or read the company name, and the shadows on the background are rather distracting.

    When shooting products as such, make sure that the company / brand name / logo is always visible and get rid of distracting elements, including distracting shadows, distracting highlights, and distracting reflections.

    Hope that helps, and if you have any questions, feel free to email me.

    the first one's DOF is way to shallow. and the crop is pretty awkward.

    the second could probably be saved with some decent PPing but really it needs to be wider. the gloves' fingers shouldn't be cut off (or they should be more) and the helmet could use some more cushion.

    just my .02
