in terms of the water, the color of the reflection (red) doesn't match the yellow sky. :p
That isn't completely true. Due to the angle and the distance, the light would lose a part of photons until it hits that spot. Only problem I see: red light is shorter, so it makes no sense. The reddish/orange light should be at the horizon and the yellow part should be in the front. If we want really to take this further we should look at other things: Look at the angle of the water and the positioning of the lightwave coming from the sky. There is just no way, that the wave in the front could possibly lighted in that way, unless it's altitude was notably higher than the one from the water in the back, which it doesn't. Like this, it is completely impossible ^^ Also the waves in the front have a completely disturbing color frame, so that it doesnt fit to the rest of the image. It has no Red/orange nor Yellow light parts at all. Due to the objects in the image I think this is supposed to be the earth. The atmosphere of a planet like the earth doesn't allow you to see the stars in such an angle. According to this, the atmosphere would be alot thinner than it actually is ^^ Also if you have so much light in the background, how would you be able to see them ? A human eye couldn't make out the difference.
To help you with this, I allowed myself to play a little with your image
The big white cirlce shows where about the sun should possibly be around, to match all the lighted criteria on your image. The green lights stand for the light rays. The blue parts define the lighted parts of the water. The red blob shows where youre light sourde comes from
Enough of this talking about realism ^^
Other thing: Try to work on the water that makes the contact to the train, looks kinda weird.
Though cool surreal piece, could have fit in Steampunk with a bit of work
