Imaginative with a high degree of precision! It took me 15 minutes to crack it.

I crack it in less than 1 minutes, but it was luck! I only saw 2 mates and I thought, that must be the move!

I thought: 1st move has to be with the queen and second move has to be either Qh6 (if Kh4) or Qe3 (if Kf4), but then I realised the 1st move after some time

This is an example of the chess problem theme known as "star-flights", in which Black's king can move to any diagonal square. Here, it is the squares f4, f6, h4, h6, forming a sort of star. Once I recognized that possibility, it was just a matter of finding a square for the queen that would allow Black's king all four moves, but still set up mates.
