I love this! The focus is so clear on the subject that at first glance it appears as if something is floating in midair. Then you finally realize it is not. How you maintained such a great focus on a portion of the fence and a great blur on the rest shows what talent you have as a photographer. The subject portion is only enhanced by the blur going through the center of it. The lighting works very well in this and the simplicity in the color also adds an enhancement to the work. Both the technique and impact are excellent.

well, this is just brilliant. no point bringing up all the individual qualities - everything about it is just the way it should be.
