A place to think about composition in photography

Composing with the Golden Section

This picture has two main compositional elements, see if you agree with me:

Galaxy 2

There is the lead-in of the bright points of light from the left and the centre of the spectrum hub is placed on a vertical golden section.

I had considered cropping the image to make the centre of the hub sit on the intersection of vertical and horizontal thirds but in this case it did not work as well so I left it like this which for me is far more satisfying
