Yes, it's missing depth.
The idea is good, but it needs a lot of work.
What could help is making cleaner edges. It looks like a lot of elements were masked out using a large brush.
It doesn't have to be too sharp though, but because everything is fuzzy around the edges, you don't get a depth of field.
If you like the cloudy-effect around your bushes or stairs, try using mist. This can easily be done by making a selection with the lasso tool, set your feather range to 10-15 and make selections where you want to have mist. Then fill it with white or a very light color and play with the opacity.
