Both are great shots!
Indeed. For those who are familiar with night photography understand how hot pixels play a big roll in an image when the exposure exceeds 10 minutes. It's not caused by a high ISO (image was shot at ISO 100), it's just an annoyance that to my knowledge has no solution.

I did tweak the exposure just a hair as well, enhancing those pixels. Honestly though, I don't find the pixels to be a major distraction.
