I really love the colors on this as well as the techniques you used to layer them. Its all very appealing and the different values of blue are all very well placed and well punctuated by the pieces of pure white and black; which are themselves balanced well by their surrounding areas being lighter and darker respectively creating a very nice contrast there as well.
Where I begin to have problems here is the composition. While you are creating a great deal of interest in the bottom portion with what look like more industrial shapes in the black against the sky and balancing that very well with the stark white stars up at the top against the darker sky, I feel like a connecting fiber is missing between the two halves. It shows through a little in the white vertical bits going up the center, but being in the vertical center of the canvas it serves more as a line of division as opposed to unity. I think a good way to fix this would be to shift the whiter pieces to the right and make them more opaque or thicker to unify the two halves. They would also serve as a reinforcing guide for the eyes as the go from the brightest star at the top to the one ones lower toward the edge and down into the black. I also have an issue with the one star in the top center left with the two rings - I feel it draws too much attention, maybe making it smaller or less bright would fix this if not removing it all together. Another thing you could do is adjust the density of the stars at the top to lead the audience's eye better, right now they're super dense around the brightest star - which is good - but once they dispursed they're evenly distributed throughout more or less.
My last issue is with the black clouds at the bottom right; I like that they're there, their shape is nice and works well, however they are distracting because I can't read what they are (if that's the intent then disregard this). The source for the most part is that I clearly read the lines on the left as being scaffolding (if that's not what they're supposed to be I don't know what to say, that's what they read as) and telephone wires across middle, which lead me to believe the clouds are industrial smog, but their source isn't shown so it sort of becomes distracting, making some smoke stacks or chimney type things to denote the source would fix that easily, just something to consider.
Overall great job on this hope my critique is of some use.

Thank you for such an in-depth review! I will definitely keep this in mind when working on my next project. As for the silhouette; I'm not really sure what it is, but I really enjoyed making it!

I really like the mood and composition in this one.
It reminds me of Makoto Shinkai movies because of color palette :)
