Maybe adding some fog or making the colors towards the bakground more desaturated will fix this.

I agree. Maybe try to make it in a dark moods, add some light - tell a story with a light

edit: I think You should darken up the first plan. The light would go "from" the picture then

If you darken the rocks and bushes in your first plan, the whole background will come alive. I wouldn't be afraid to lose the details there as it would draw the viewer into the environment. I'd make them as dark as the wall on the top right corner of the image.

Here's what I mean, with due apologies for the quick paintover:
