Great shot.

Since you're asking for critique, I'd try removing some of the vignetting as it's too much for my taste (I know the Samyang 12mm vignettes quite a bit wide open).

I'd probably also clone out the branches on the left edge of the photo.

And lastly, I'd take another frame just for the foreground (at lower iso and longer SS) and merge them together to benefit from lower noise in the lower part of the frame.

Terrific shot and an outstanding setting.  A quick suggestion or two... consider reducing your exposure time a tad to around 25s.  I shoot a lot of astro at that FL (but with a different 12mm lens) and you start getting some trailing and point distortion, particularly at the edges, when you shoot any slower than that.  Consider some careful NR on your finished image.  It will clean it up a bit, highlight the detail, and if you do it carefully, you won't lose much if any detail (i.e. stars).  Finally, you definitely have some room to increase your ISO, thus enabling an even faster shutter speed if desired.  I regularly shoot starscapes at ISO 3200 and still find the noise to be very manageable.  Even going to 800 or 1600 will help you gather more detail and allow you to hold your exposure time down.

Nice work!

Thank you for your reply,
