Decent first attempt, friend. The first two things I noticed:
1. In a night scene, the land should never be brighter than the sky. Unless of course there are artifical lights, like city lights. But otherwise, the sky is always more visible.
2. Everything, especially the sky, is too green. Go for more of a blue hue. And desaturate the landscape more.
Keep it up!
