Great photo!, the blue and black go very well together, maybe the hint of colour at the bottom right could be cropped out, but thats just my own opinion.

Mark - Darkening it would render the left side far to dark, and I wanted to keep the contrast on the right side. Thanks for the input, though.

Philip - I have other photos where there is no color, but I kept it on purpose. :)

I meant brighten it up a tad, not darken . . . sorry :P

Often, when you are dealing with pure black shadows (like I think those would be) you can brighten up the image a fair bit, and have the shadows still remain pure black :)

Just a thought. . .

My first thought was "wow." I'm a sucker for sky shots, though.

I happen to love the colour in the corner. It's the perfect size and shade. It seems to be letting the blue overpower it, and as night is falling, that's what night does: it conquers the daylight.

Don't change a single thing about this beautiful photo.

Yeah, that makes more sense.

Lighten it up too much though, and you loose the color...which is why it isn't lighter. The shadows aren't a problem in this one. :)
