Excellent image: nice color contrast between the dark blue sky & sepia lighting, nice sweep from the hilltop castle or to the town below. Here's a couple of ideas you might consider:

1. A longer shutter speed would let you use a lower ISO and maybe boost the shadows to see the surrounding forest.

2. Taking this picture on a moon lit night might reveal more of the color of the roofs and the green forests surrounding the town, too.

3. A longer focal length or portrait-oriented composition could focus on the older parts of the town (removing the brightly-lit modern structures on the right and adding a bit more of the foreground buildings in the lower left)

4. Pictures at different times relative to sunrise or sunset might have different moods or sky colorations.

5. Use pixel shift to create even higher resolution versions of this image.
