Yes, it does look better now, much more like a night scene. Good work.

Ok for the backgraound,


Create a camera > go to the camera shape under attributes > go the environment click on image plane > create > pick that image you are useing, and there you have. Now the light won't touch the backgraound

Are you looking throught the camera? If not just click on Panels > Perspective > and your camera, like camera 1, 2, 3 and so on.

Hope that help

If you have adobe photoshop, just open the image up in in photoshop, and brighten the stars up.
