Hi, and welcome to the community. To give your work some critique I feel the lighting on the houses do not reflect the color tonality of the sky.
A subtle hue shift too blue tones may hel you with that. As well as trying to remove the obvious shadow on the roof that shows an mid-morning/afternoon sunlight.

I really like the rain effect, especially as it's pouring off the roof and splashing on the pavement. If you brought the lightning on the right forward a bit (instead of in the distance) I think it would help w/the lighting you already have on the roofs. Some puddles w/reflections would look real nice too. Nice work though!

Thank you
I made some little changes according with your advices
Anyway, I want also to maintain a little surrealistic effect for the image
(I think I like too much the light :) )
Please, I expect more critics, because this is a concept that I know only for 2-3 days, and I have a lot to learn in this area

Good start, I think the street lights may also be a bit too hot in temperature... Maybe cool them down a bit/unsaturate them some. Also look for a gradation in the lights. Brighter in the center for the bulb...
