Just noticed that the AC and Antenna would have to be installed with people on top so there should be some safety.
Such as a Parapet (aka low wall) that surrounds the building so it look's more realistic.

I suggest dropping the inside to keep the same height instead of adding in Walls.

This was actually in my original idea, but I guess I forgot to add it in. It's there now, as well as what's supposed to be a silhouette of a man standing on the edge of the building (I did this rather quickly)

Here's the moon in a different colour to the windows, as people have suggested.


Here the windows are a different but very similar colour to the moon.


I like the latter more, to me the moon just looks right when it's yellow.

I like moon this way, pale greenish-blue with less contrast. That's the kind of light those building are getting i think.

This one's exactly what I was talking about. I didn't necessarily mean turning the moon blue, Goosemonger... just not so saturated a color as you originally had.

I think the main problem with the image is that there is no hierarchy: everything seems to have the same contrast, brightness, and level of detail.
 (Though I think you did a pretty good job with the back layer of buildings).
Some refs.
