Very Nice but a little unbalanced to my eyes.

Would crop it without the shadow area on the right.

I'm with Thierry on this one. The image is superb but there's a bit too much black/dark on the right side of this image. The good thing about that black area is the city lights… Maybe, I need more time to appreciate it fully.

Pushing the light on the right (there are trees in the dark area) will help to obtain a better balance.

That might be a good solution to keep the city lights in the distance.

Thierry, Francois,

I updated the image above by bringing back the exposure on the trees.  I had previously purposely brought it down to emphasize the amphitheater.  But looking at it again I think it does look better with the exposure a little higher.

Also today's higher quality monitor's have much better brightness that brings out details in shadows a lot more.  Looking at a few monitors around the house, I see the image is poorer on less bright monitors.

Cropping, I don't think is an option as the purpose of the photo is to show the amphitheater in its forest kind of setting.

Thanks

Stephen,
The updated version is very fine for me, no need to use the crop tool!
