Should I Lighten The Patina On My Alex?

Please take a look at the coin above. It is an Alexander the Great (III) AR drachm I recently acquired. I love these particular coins but I am not sure the coin is too dark for my taste. Consequently, I am asking my readers for feedback. What do you think? Should the coin be lighter in value or should I leave the "natural" patina as is?

As an aside, I am working on my silver coin photography and I invite feedback on my photograph. Is the negative space too light? Thanks you for looking and God Bless.. Jerry..

I think the coin is fine as it is.
Silver coins look very attractive with nice toning. So, no, it's not too dark.
