day for night techniques

I have some video I shot in daylight, and I'd like to make it look like it was shot at night.

I've been playing with the brightness, contrast - and I've added a deep blue shading.

Now it does look like night, but something's doesn't look quite right.

Does anyone have any tips or suggestions?

Avoid the sky in any of the shots and try and use the sun as a 3/4 backlight (if there is any!!!)
