I've just had a go at this and using nothing more than levels, you can get a thousand different versions!
I think this one's a bit too dark, having seen what's in that darkness.
There are lots of stars and other detail in there which I personally think add quite a bit to the image.
However, if it's black, blackness that you're after, then this works for me as well.
Horses for courses, I guess.
And yes, I do like the addition of the car's lights.
Hope this helps.

Very, very dark indeed. Far too much so. The mods are rather better, but still not convinced your content is adequate.

Ignore the main picture. Looking at mod 1, any tips on how the content could be improved

Mod 2 is best I think. You need a right hand crop to place the tree on the right third. Then you have a reasonable image, but still not over thrilled with content./ Just a personal thing.
