I know it's for teen chalenge and it probably has a general theme, but I have no idea what's going on. I understand there is a landscape and some weird light-creature things but that's about it. I don't know why one seems to have something different on top of it. SO, I'd say for one thing making it more clear what's happening could help.
There doesn't seem to be any cast shadows, the tree trunks don't seem to be in perspective ... maybe the perspective as a whole is a bit iffy.
The composition seems a bit bland, and even there seems to be a bit of a focal point with the light that appears to be different, it has the same amount of space as everything else, and everything is places so uniformly it really takes any interest out of the picture.
I know it's a bit late to do a total redo, but it might do well to explore more options in the placement of elements, bring the view level down to the ground and focus on one of the lights etc.
