It could pass for a night scene, though it looks like ambient lighting, and does not have bright highlights the way most real night lighting does.

A high contrast light placed far from your subject that is slightly under-exposed will give you more realistic highlights.

Taha, it does look like a night scene. You can further trick the brain by having an immediate cut showing night and then this scene. The brain will connect both scenes together and figure out that this is how night looks in this particular interior.

Good luck!

I think the first test looks much better and is believable. I like Alex's idea of showing a night shot, perhaps a street lamp with gnats buzzing around it or even the house that the next scene takes place in, illuminated by the moonlight.

Take care!

Yes, it's better with a lamp or something like this. You can justificate more light... :D

I'm not a fan of filming night scenes during the day and then fixing it in post, but your test N° 2 does look like it was shoot during night time, so.. Haha, good luck Taha.
