Your composition is really great. I think the contrast of the warmer colors with the reddish tinge compliment well with he cooler green colors in the foreground. The stairs and the neatly tiled floor give off a modern look that stimulates the brain because it contrast with the ancient appearance of the background and the rest of the staircase. I love the large trees, roots, and plants in the image. I can almost hear a wildlife of birds and insects chiming in the background and the rustling of animals in the distant brush. That wildlife alone in the thick of life can give something a very mystical appeal.

I think this picture is invoking or stimulating to the brain because the modern looking steps (whether they are actually modern or not) contrast with the old timely look of the rest of the image. Nice job.
