I like this shot a lot! If it's for real (not some kind of PP manipulation) I really think that you don't even need any critique for this photo. It is perfect as it is. Mystical, etheral, professional...I like the color play, I like the atmosphere...It is mystical all right! If you lit the subject more it wouldn't be so mysterious. In any case great! Congrats! ;))

Composition
& perspective
I wouldn't do it any other way! Great! You did not include too much front element (floor) and therefore showed much more interesting night sky! Also the ultra wide lens is great choice for this image since it allows you to show how big part of this structure the universe is! I like the way milky way goes into the structure!

Obviously you know what you are doing. It is a long exposure. Otherwise, you wouldn't be able to catch the milky way!

Well, you balanced this shot perfectly! I don't know from which source is the blueish (purple-ish) light on the structure but it is perfectly balanced with the background (milky way). The colours are complementary - blue and orange! It looks as almost you made it all in post processing! ;)

Description
I'm trying to convey a sense of wonder and mystery with this image. With the iconic structure as the foreground and the milky way as the background I want the view to ask  see all >

How to improve your photo
1.
This photo needs almost no improvement (as far as I am concerned). Exposure is perfect, composition also.
2.
Maybe the sides of the structure would benefit from a LITTLE bit more of that light, but that's is just one small and almost unnecessary thing.
3.
In a photograph like this the most important things are patience, knowledge and a tripod! But I see you have all 3 of them!
