I like it, too. The tone and color contrasts between the trees and the lighted tree trunk is appealing. I might crop a bit off the left, though.

I don’t agree that the left should be cropped. I think the descent into darkness at that end is an important part of the picture.
But Jeremy’s idea that I never crop is only partly correct. I almost never crop with street shots. When I’m carrying my street camera I tend to see in 3 x 2 blocks. But when I’m shooting with a D850 I have enough megapixels (45.7) that I can crop and still end up with something worthwhile. When shooting birds on the wing, even with a 70-200mm lens, I rarely can frame exactly the way I’d like to. But with the D850 I can crop down to what I used to get with my D3 (12.1 mpx) and have a usable result. I don’t like to crop, but sometimes I can’t avoid it. Even HCB cropped at least two of his pictures. But this picture is one that doesn’t need a crop.
