The one thing you will strugle with more than anything else, will be achieving consistent lighting.

You have a sunset from behind, but the house is illuminated from the front, and the waterfall looks to be illuminated from above, as is the horse. It looks like there is some gigantic spotlight in the sky between the horse and the waterfall...You also have too much darkening of the edges of the image on the LH side. The building behind the house looks like it's being sucked up in a black hole, the shadows are so dark.

The cloud/mountain mass looks too contrived. There is not enough cloud moisture in the sky for that visual division to be so indistinct, while every clump of grass is so sharp and in focus.
