The basic color correction is in place and now you need to start focusing on the details. How about adding more "lights"?
I'm thinking about lights projected from the cars, lights on the seafront and on the other side of the ocean. You could also add some "activity" in the nearby port.

thanks a lot for the comments, yeah a little more subtle changes would make it more realistic, ich guess i will add some birds and stuff. here's another version with little reflections on the water.

It gets better every time.
I like the light contrast nearby the bridge and on the see front.
I think this is very promising: just keep focusing on the details.

some more subtle changes added, does anyone know if i can participate to the voting posting an image and not an animation, because my computer is way too slow to run combustion or df.

While your image looks quite nice, it will have to be moving in order to qualify for voting. You must use the original footage provided. Other than that, what you've got is promising, now all you have to do is make it move.

ok - i rebuilt everything in fusion, i'll add some more highlights and reflections to the water later on and fix some lightning problems in the foreground, i guess i'll have to render the scene in many passes since fusion is gettin slow very fast. comments please! pretzel:

On a moonlit night as bright as this i would expect the moon to cast some fairly diffuse shadows that fall back towards the camera position. There are some fairly strong shadows under the bridge falling away away from the camera?
The birds seem very large, also some of the spotlights and lens effects could use some work.
Overall though I think you are on the right track - keep it up.
