Oh, my.... this is an amazing picture. Unfortunately, the aminus FAQ does not explain how to give 6 stars, so I'll have to settle for giving you 5.

There's no distraction in colour. Just a tiny spec of red that contrasts beautifully, like one minuscule focal point. The DOF is precisely right. The bokeh gorgeous. And the composition perfect. I feel kinda silly saying all that. I mean, it feels like it should be obvious why this is such a fantastic image.
