To my eyes the colors just don't seem appealing. Since this was shot at night, there is no reality to reclaim. I played with color cast and hue/saturation tools until I got something which I liked.
Hi Jim, yes, I purposely made that first sky dark when I processed using hue sat as well as a layer with multiply. I would eventually like to get it dark enough to show a milky way, but not sure that's even possible when the moon is up. I am going to need to try at various phases to find out. But getting to a dark area is not easy. Zion is one such, but around my home I would have a mighty long drive to get away from light pollution.
On the other hand, the look you got is more like a predawn look. I may show one I got the next morning. I had it all ready to show but sensed low interest so I put it on the back burner.
You may notice the second image is lighter. Still experimenting.
