You can try to darken the sky more (make it amost black, with a couple of stars) and maybe some clouds to show where the moon light comes from that also lights the buildings, to give a more real effect. Also try tune down the lights that hit the buildings (turn sunlight in to a bit weaker moonlight). Maybe if you manage to put on some lights in side the buildings (some lights on in the rooms) you get the feeling that it is really dark.

Apply a blue filter to the image, blacken the sky, remove any reflections, blur the shadows out a little, turn on that streetlamp in the bottom left part of the image, and turn on a few lights in the office buildings.

a question: why remove the reflections? mirrors also reflect at night.......

That's what I was thinking too... :p

I think you’re on the right track. Maybe turn on the street lights and a couple lights in the buildings and drop in a star or two and you’re on your way. :)

True, but mirrors don't reflect as much at night as they do in that original daylight picture (because there's less light to reflect).
