I love the sky- nice colors and stars. The trees are a lovely contrast. The rocks on the right look like a looming figure- not sure what I think of that. I wonder how it would look if you used a bit of light painting on the big rocks.
I must admire any attempt at photographing the night sky- something I find especially tricky! You did a great job on the sky!

Love it!
I think the brightness on the rocks and f/g is perfect and looks very natural,,,esp when viewed against the darker b/g when clicking on the image.
