This to me is like a gorgeous, buttery photograph with 1.8 aperture. I love the background and how the blue is so sharp. Those shadows are amazing and the glistening plate? I mean, damn. So great. And, of course I love the quote. As your SHJ once said, "sorry I sweared" but man.

This one is really nice. Very well done. I think having a few styles is good.
