Steps showing the artificial shadows and lighting I'm adding to this design. Easier with such a beautiful bike, too.
Any tips for improving the realism of it?

Only suggestion I would add is to make the shadow spanning between the two wheels a little less intense, but otherwise it's a nice effect and sets the bike off well.
@Phil Coffman Been wondering about that. Did that with the lighting in front of the wheels (final step), probably need to do it with the shadow, too.
Looks great. I might add some more definition between the back wall and the floor (sharper line), the spotlight on the wall seems like it'd create a clear separation.
It's these little details that really make work standout.
@Caleb Ogden Also have been wondering about that. Sometimes a little peer review is all that's needed to finalize a gut feeling :)
@Jeremiah Adkins Along the lines of "Details are not details, they make the product" (Charles Eames), right?
@Cameron Moll Exactly. Words to live by.
@Cameron Moll It looks much realistic, are you working on their website? (just curious to know)
@Cameron Moll the middle shadow could be a little lighter than the shadow directly under the wheels. Currently they all look about the same strength. Also you're bringing in the light from the users perspective (not the top of the picture) so I'd wonder if the shadow would actually extend against the wall as opposed to just straight down as if the light was coming from above only.
Just a couple thoughts to make it better - outstanding work!
Agreed with @michaelsacca on lighter middle shadow... anyway a strong realistic lightning effect and awesome bike.
@michaelsacca Good idea, I'll play around with that.
