I was thinking of cropping the image at the left so just enough so the tree is not in the photo. What do you think?

I know its kind of dark but there's a tree on the edge of the left side.

Any other comments/observations welcome.

I think the tree is fine, but I'd level that horizon, I don't like it slanting to the right.

Re crop: much of a muchness to me. FWIW, I think this shot needs more shadow detail to become interesting. A foreground may also have helped. Cheers, Tony

I would DRASTICALLY crop the photo to be basically just the bottom portion with the lights. the dark top/hill dont add anything to the photo in my opinion. I think a long slender panaramic crop would work nicely on this photo.

I love the details, however I think it's a bit dark in the upper right quadrant. I probably wouldn't crop much, perhaps a bit on the left, but I think it's fine
