Night Sky of Half Dome

I attempted to capture the a shot of Half Dome in Yosemite Valley under the movement of the stars. However, light came from the valley floor will always be around Half Dome. With that in mind I attempted a shot with the closest light sources to Half Dome within the picture, being the rock climbers that are on the face of half dome, campground where it gives orange light effect from the fire, and the small crescent moon from the night to achieve the shadow effect.
