Nice start, but a couple things:

1. The house gets lost--it is hard to make out its shape. In the original it's pretty obvious. It looks like you tried to dodge the black shadow areas, but there is no detail in them to dodge out.

2. Also, the color is gone. I would leave color in there, but make it look day-for-night, with reduced saturation.

3. The perspective on the house is pretty extreme--I would make it less so--that will make it more film-like.

Show us your progress.
