    A few critiques. First, the shot is not sharp. Second, the ideal night landscape shot is when you are able to retain details in all areas in the shot. Which in this case, there are many luminosity clippings (lost of details).

    What you can do next time? Get a strong and sturdy tripod. Shoot on f11-f16 and longer exposure. If you wanna get night shots, shoot during the "golden time". (twilight) So you can get abit of colours in the sky and some light to illuminate the foreground. If the contrast is still too high, you might need to make a HDR shot.

    I think you can shot for a longer exposure...

    I think the main problem here is the scene you chose to snap. You'll improve on your techniques as you go along, but for me, I just don't know what you're trying to show. Why all those trees are there in the foreground? Are they supposed to lend something to the photo? Are you looking to take pictures of buildings at night or trees illuminated by street lamps? Putting the two together won't work well for genuine night photography. Planning your scene is half the picture, be careful about what you decide put on film.
