This is sick! Loving the colors and all the in-your-face motion. I could never pull off a shot like this without a ton of flare going on. Either you have a killer lens or you spent a ton of time cloning that out. Either way, great job.
Comp or light first? Always gotta ask with shots like this. Wonderful capture my friend! I would suggest to mask out the sharpening in the bottom right quarter of the image; at least for the web image. What were the specs on this?
