Default Need Opinion

For a short period of time in the winter, the Big Dipper lines up with the top of Mount Shasta. Shot it from my roof, Bulb mode at various ISOs. Two versions, one with the mountain details left in, that look like noise but isn't, and the other with the mountain smoothed out. Which one do you like best, or does the shot just not work as too darn dark? Thanks, I appreciate your input.

I agree with Eric, the whole pic is too dark. I lightened up the mountain and to me, it looked better. What do you think? If you don't like it I will take it down.

Thanks for your input. I'm going back to the drawing board. Great idea, so-so execution.

If only you could have had a tree or a large church/building in the foreground to one side. Even your chimney might have helped.
