Please remember I'm no expert and share this critique as an expression of what I'd do with this shot.
Firstly I love the colours in the clouds.
The frame of trees and leaves is well executed, however I personally would have 'tweeked' the photo a bit;
When I first looked at this, full size, my eye wandered all over the picture, I found the colours coming through the canopy and at the bottom of the image a bit too distracting.
I'd prefer you had added some vignetting and edging to the picture [a 50% - 100% opacity, soft black brush can be used to mimic natural lens vignetting]

This would have reduced the impact of those spots of bright colour & would have allowed the eye to be drawn to the main image.. your wonderful sunset.
What do you think?
