Hi Mike. I like the sky much better in this one. I see you have used Sequator too. I like the overall composition and effect, maybe a little more shadow in the lower F/G to balance the image. One thing I do note that is a little distracting is the star trailing between the rock and the sky. I assume this happened in Sequator, you can use the scroll wheel to reduce the brush size to cover that area. If not you need to mask it out in PS.

lovely image Michael.  Couple of cloning marks near the rock.  not an issue at all as the image is striking and captivating.  That bright star?, not being able to access sky patterns here, as viewed from your location, could that be Jupiter?   (I've been looking at Jupiter the last week here in the UK which is seen when viewed south, south west).

Either way, nicely done again.
Make your life spectacular!

Have you ever used Stellarium? I believe you can set it for any location to view the night sky. Yes, that is Jupiter. Thanks for the comments.

I've been trying to replace this image with one that's re-edited to get rid of the star trails and can't seem to do it. Any advice on what to do? Thanks.

I like this one a lot, Just a tiny bit of work with curves, as suggested above, could really make a very good photo even better.
