Include the tops of the buildings and you end up with a big mass of dark sky at the top, which adds nothing to the scene and makes the photo look unbalanced.

Crop away the top and you have a bridge in a busy urban setting. Include it and you end up with a thin strip of city, a lot of dark sky at the top with a few buildings sticking through and an empty-looking scene.

Very colorful, I like it. The top of the buildings would be a "+" but I understand your choice (vs the black sky).
Well done!

Gorgeous just as it is.

I almost have to put on sunglasses to look at it.

I agree, leave it as it is would be my thoughts and wow, what a kaleidoscope of colour. I like it, I like it a lot  ;)
