Hi Dan,
I like the sky and the way you lit the Mesquite even though its just a bit bright. Compositionally I like the 3 dominant Mesquite trees. The one on the far right I might remove along with it's foreground pieces.

Hi Dan

Very Nice... I would agree with Dave on removing the bits of tree LRC if your ethics allow and there is a bit of a colour shift in a small section LLC..

Nice one Dan. I would normally say that I wish your light painting was more "even" and "flowing", but the way the branches are highlighted actually nails my eye to the foreground a tad longer and helps me explore a bit more.
Something funky going on in the bottom left? Masked adjustments showing perhaps?

Nice one Dan, I agree with the other comments on cleaning up the RHC .
