Personally I love colorful images, where the colors are true but a little "turned up", and I think this image is absolutely gorgeous, color-wise. Also, the general composition is stunning. You can really, really see the horse shape, and you can see how the horse is gazing intently at bright star Beta Scorpii. Amazing!

Thank you Ann. Yes I also like saturating the color a bit (but hopefully not too much).

As for the composition, as I mentioned in the comment about this image, my wife Ariana was the one who decided the framing of this image - we took a widefield image from the Internet of this area, drew a rectangle of the size of my field of view, then she moved it around, rotated it, etc. until she said: "there, this is how you should frame it". Now, every time I'm about to take a wide field of an area in the sky, I always ask her first :-)
