While I really appreciate this image from a technical perspective, it stayed at a 3 for me because of the amount of dead space in the foreground. I like the idea of using the rock trails as a foreground subject but in the full pano it just leaves too much empty and uninteresting space below the mountains. Maybe getting the camera lower might help with that.

Also really interesting how different the astro modification makes some of the colors look! Especially how much red is in Rho Ophiuchi instead of the normal yellow.
