It's beautiful. it's hard for a 'messy' piece to stand out, but apart the fact that the messy look does mean something in this piece, the colors, contrast, and the composition make it one very good piece, definately worthy of your (high) standards!
Actually I think this may be one of your better pieces.
I can't easily tell where the Apo ends and the UF begins, so that's a really cool thing to pull off. And the colors! Great mix of colors and hues here, just all blending together in this mixture that doesn't become a soup.
What I really like is this view-engulfing complexity. You didn't let the picture frame stop the fractal, and that works really well here.
