Foreground vegetation(?) is too stylized for my taste. Can't figure out what/where the blue-green things are. By size they seem like foreground, but they're so much brighter than the (presumably silhouetted) black bits. I like the textured vegetation in the background, esp. the trailing bits.

Yeah, it's fine to use the lasso tool, but when you start crossing the lines over themselves too much, you get those characteristic voids in the selection, and it just looks Photoshoppy. I'd recommend redoing that foreground foliage to avoid that. That same foliage is also inexplicably black. Even if it's in the shadow, it'll still show up as a dark, perhaps bluish and a little desaturated green. You've also got brush strokes from the background overlapping onto those forms, which suggests to me that maybe you just needed to spend more time refining this.
And speaking of those background foliage brush strokes...I think you need to change your brush settings. The effect you're getting is too soft and undefined and again Photoshoppy. Try to get fairly sharp edges to those green shapes, and textures that suggest individual plants and leaves and stems and fronds and shoots and so forth. You don't want the plants to look like green clouds.
And yes, the blue things are quite confusing, though I didn't really notice them until Morgan mentioned them. Are those waterfalls? If so, study photos of waterfalls. Don't guess. Reality rarely looks exactly like you think it does.
