Hooray for your top score, smashing the old one! And beating 79% of the competition, to boot. This was a solid 6 shot!

Others used this concept but with more flair. Check out some of the other entries in this challenge to see what I mean. This is a great shot but there is a lack of a theme or something that makes it original.

I had thought of dominos too. The composition probably could have been improved upon. I do like the DOF idea. 5
