Hi Girish,
this looks like a great beginning to something really cool.

A few things stood out to me initially:
  • The neon lighting on the right is too saturated - it draws the eye too much. Needs to be toned down a bit.
  • The perspective of the buildings bottom centre looks off somehow, especially compared to the vanishing point of the alleyway on the left and the clump of buildings further towards the horizon.
  • The vehicle on the right merges with the structures behind - it's hard to tell what's what.
  • The Calatrava building appearing bottom left looks odd - it's hard to tell if we viewing it from above, the side, or what

Looks like a solid start though!

I agree with Derek, but the most important thing if you want to do photo real matte paintings is besides, image composition color and so , photographic exposure, this will make it look photoreal because is what you see with your own eyes and what you see a real camera caughts, get some real photo reference, cities at night, and study how they look, how bright are lights and how dark are shadows, levels near and far , and apply that to what you already have and you will see a big improvement
