A few pointers for you.

1 - use a tripod
2 - make sure the image is level, the horizon is way out on this one
3 - to let more light into the camera, use a longer shutter speed, or a smaller aperture. eg- if this was 1 second, try 2 or 3 seconds. or, at f4, try f8 to force the camera to expose for longer. remember though, the longer the exposure, the greater the risk of making bright areas burn out. trial and error to find a setting that works.
4 - dont give up, keep trying.
5 - shoot on best quality possible. perhaps use the cameras auto bracketing if it has it. otherwise, set the camera on manual, and tell it to underexpose, then overexpose, and combine them with a correctly exposed shot. (tripod is a must for this though)

best of luck
