The colors look off to me, esp. the sky. The out of focus log also doesn't work for me.
I like the scene here and the composition but I am having a hard time with the colors and the light from the processing. I would be highly inclined to crop the bottom of this to remove the out of focus part of the log if this were my image. Maybe up to the bottom of the blooms in the lower right. You could almost crop this to be a landscape orientation by eliminating some of the very dark clouds at the top.
A crop suggestion:
The blooms, the log arrangements, and the best part of the sunset colors are preserved and have a more consistent color palette.
I am liking what you found in Carlsbad. Adding the logs and flowers to your composition is great.
I am guessing that you are trying to imitate the look of many Instagram users rather then going for a traditional Landscape photo look? As an artist you definitely have a choice as to your look. So the unnatural coloring and darkening does fit that Instagram look. I would say that the out of focus bottom does hurt the image. Using hyper focal distance will help you in getting your photo all in focus.
Great scene, and I agree with the comments. Crop the bottom to eliminate the blurred log, a bit off the top to balance the image, and back off on the heavy handed processing.
