I struggled to get this pleasing and I am not happy with the rocks and the water in the foreground. Somewhere I overdid the curving and there is a weird look to them.

Kessi,
The answer to where you overdid the curve is actually in your screen shot.

The area I have circled is creating the "flatness" you are seeing.  It is right on the verge of solarization.  If you tone this area down a bit you should get more out of the image. 

Regardless of how you tackle it the L channel is the culprit.
