This is a superb and original work, I've never seen anything done like this before. The details are amazing, the way you blurred certain areas and all the colors together is perfect. I also love the slight bokeh in the background, it really adds the perfect touch to bring it all together.
This has to be one of my all time favorites from your works, you have plenty of amazing things but this one is up there in the top five.
I can honestly say that I don't have one bad thing to say about this, you really pulled off a unique and inspirational piece here and I hope to see more like it from you in the future, keep up the great work. :D

Everything is wonderful in this picture.
Colours, composition, background, depth of field.
This is not a zip to examine: it's a zip to contemplate.
