Very cool photo. While I like the glow from the right, including it does give you a lot of negative space and I think an alternative square or 4x5 crop eliminating the right side does balance it better for me.

Thanks, E.J., I appreciate the feedback. I like color in night photos (not too late)
and I think 4x5 works as well. Still have some blue hour color.....

Another lovely sky shot. Too bad the beautiful color on the right is so far away from the rock. Agree with the crop idea on the right, but hate the idea of losing that colorful element-I can see why you wanted it in there. The streak does sort of lead the eye out of the picture though.... :). Tough call to make.

Another nice one Dan!
Although I tend to agree with the crop suggestion...I'm torn because I wouldn't want to lose the nice colour on the right hand side.
