Im trying to do a remake of an old pixel art, but i think it's looking too flat, what could I do to make it more pleasant to see?

Color stuff! Desaturate the background, maybe add mist there. Up the saturation on the focal point! And add some dark reflection to the water!

I think it's not necessary to reduce the black of the background or the edges of the screen on the rocks, but adding reflections of the tree and the hanging lanterns(?) in the pond would do wonders. Make the blue light more powerful imho.
