This is really outstanding for your first painting! I think the colors are good, and it is a great night sky. Main suggestion is to get the waterline horizontal. Right now it is flowing off the left of the painting.

Great work, especially for the first time!

nice one for your first time. Personally the water line doesn't bother me because it looks like the edge of a stream which is not always straight. You might wish for some more definition in the background...tree shapes or house shape or something that breaks up that big dark. Nice color and light reflection. Here's an example of what I mean, but you notice that there are other planes that are horizontal that make it "feel" better and you could put some horizontal planes behind the bank.
