Northern lights at dawn. One last photo before I called it a night... or morning, I guess?

I like this shot and I think it has a lot of potential. The northern lights so low on the horizon combined with it being almost dawn give it a really interesting feel. My biggest issue is the lighting on the landscape. I think it's too harsh in spots - particularly the rock above and to the left of the silhouetted figure. I know it's difficult when you're using a headlamp or flashlight to light paint - and something I'm still learning myself - but I would love to see a softer light more evenly distributed in the foreground to give it a slightly more natural feel. That could just be personal preference though.
