I changed my vote on this 3 times... I ended up with the higher of the 2 votes. My only "suggestion" would be maybe try something where the lock and butterfly would of been more in focus and the rest maybe less in depth. I don't know just an opinion. I think its a great shot though!

Nice title. Love the perspective and color as well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I love the colour casted on the steel and the complimentary yellow green spectrum. The sharpness is engaging compared to the shallow areas but is this all in the lens or did you enhance it in post?
