I think it's really good as it is, not too dark

I would bump up the exposer a little bit. Colors are gorgeous!

Very neat angle and the sunset is beautiful, but yes it comes across as a little dark.

Loved how you have used a natural frame, but yes it is a bit dark. And if you do crop the frame, then maybe it would be not so dark. Love the colors.

I think it's a tad bit dark. I think there are some finer details that would show more if exposure was increased or if you played more with brightness/contrast. I do like the composition though.

The sunset is breathtaking but I feel like overall the photo should be lightened a bit, especially to highlight the sky.

It's moody, which is nice. I think it would change the effect if you lightened it.

Very moody, nice. I would try to lighten just a bit. Maybe create a poll with this version and a slightly lighter version and see how people respond.

Yes, I'd bump up the exposure a bit. I love these colors though, they're striking!

First off, this is a great photo. I think the colors are beautiful and the frame of the window is awesome. To address your question, if you are thinking about for printing purposes, then I would say yes, I think it's a little too dark. Other than printing, I think the darkness serves the photo well.

Hi! I would maybe lighten it just a tad. Not too much though--it's a super unique image as is.

Yes, I would brighten it a bit. And you might want to crop it so that there is an equal amount of white border around the image. It's a very intriguing image. I find myself looking closely to understand everything that's happening.

I think it could use some brightening. The colors are amazing though!

Very creative composition! I think that the darkness makes a statement and it's still bright enough to see the details. However, I think it would also look great with a little more exposure. It all depends on what mood you're going for.

First impression is yes, it is a bit dark. Colors are neat but the dark sky competes too much with the dark water below, my eyes want a little bit of a distinction between the two areas.

Perhaps bump up the exposure of the frame for contrast, I'm afraid if you mess with the skyline it will affect the gorgeous colors.

no, not too dark. i like being able to see the window frame but it doesn't draw attention away from the sky.

I like the mood but would agree that the exposure could perhaps be brought up just a hair. Very cool!
