Cool coil. The hot white speculars on it make it look like its made from glass. The bokeh is bumpin'. Lovely little pearly spheres. Cool image, would've liked some more contrast and maybe a tad bit of brightness on the glass. Keep the background low and the heat up the foreground. Keep the heated coil and lead wires dark and saturated. Maybe a slight vignette on the background's brightness. Offset, so the coil really "glows". Very subtle modifications.

I like this quite a bit. I'm hoping your mentioned in your notes how you did this. My guess: low power to the lamp to ensure that the coil is only partially heated.
