It is a good concept, and it has a decent composition.
It would work as a mood or color reference...

But as a matte painting it should be more believable.
Search for some similar photos to find the differences.

Some obvious ones;

You should bring the contrast down (it's overcast , like a big soft box)
with this rain you can not have perfect reflection on the ground
There should be splashing of waters and ripple all over
As for the night ... try looking for more references...

As for the night shot, personally I think the dark areas, should be a lot darker, and they should be more desaturated.

Agreed, the reflections are way too smooth. And you forgot to add your lights to the reflections in the night shot. Overall I think the stormy version has a lot of potential.
