Hm, I think you should desaturate the colors on the arcade a bit, they look flashy compared to the grass.
Also, maybe you'd like to change the color of some leaves in the trees, they look a bit too fluorescent.
And as a final advice, make the texture on the stairs less visible (around 50% opacity and 60% fill).
Good luck!

It looks much better now, the elements seem to merge with the background more than before :)
I now suggest that you add some texture to the poles and arcade, it looks too shiny and clear.

Like this?

Torii (Edited 2x)

At first i'm giving to much texture that make it not right, so i reduce it litle by litle, and i think this is the right amount of texture.

oh, thx for the feedback until now ^_^

Sorry for not replying sooner ^_^' It's a good texture, but I suggest you make it barely visible. After all, it's the character you want to draw attention to, right? ;)

I agree that the texture needs to be much more subtle. Also, the leaves and grass are too dull in color, you need to change the saturation. The biggest thing is that the edges of the trees are really jagged, that's the biggest thing.

The whole background also looks really flat, which is especially noticeable considering you've used a series of Torii. I also have a hard time seeing whether the stone bricks make a road or a series of steps, so unless you're planning on putting characters in front of them, I'd do something about that.

Mainly, I'd put some effort into making the background look like more than just the immediate stuff in front and the mountains far into the distance.

i reduce the texture on the torii, also repair the jagged on the tree. i also add new color for the grass. for the leaves i want it to look like an autumn leaves so the color must be brown right? maybe because of that it may looks dull. to the stair that look flat i try to change that by adding shadow. i cant change the stair since the layer already merge. unless i remade from scratch. any idea how to make the backgroud don't look flat anymore?

this the result for now:

Um, I suppose it's better now. I still think you should go for a more grey-ish color for the Torii. After all, it's not that shiny in reality, is it? Also, remove that white glow, it kind of screams "low quality" (I don't mean this in an offensive way).
For the grass, I say you should use the other default grass brush you have too. Here's a very good tutorial which helps a lot: click here.

ok, thx very much for all your feedback. i'm planning to used this background for an ilustration in my novel, but since it still not good i'm going to ask my friend to draw the ilustration and used this image as a basic idea what i want it to be. i'll learn more to make a better background for my own satisfaction ^_^. one last think i want to ask is can photoshop add new default brush for grass, leaves, etc? if can, where i can download it?

once again thank you for your help ^_^

I think that the image looks too flat -or at least the elements in it.
Some shadows would probably fix that. There are a few methods to do shadows.

The image lacks perspective or a vanishing point to give depth. The steps and the torii obviously appear to be cloned with the angles of the steps, and the thickness of the torii poles. This is where you are getting the "flatness" referred to by other comments. Think about it for a minute, if you are looking at an object close up and then looking at the same object in the distance - are they meant to be the same size? That's the issue with the torii and steps, they are all the same size irrespective of the distance from the viewer. This consequently screams, with all respect to the effort you've put in so far, a lack of attention to detail. Even if it is a background (notice I don't say "only"), the viewer's eye will be drawn to the background in a wallpaper as much as, if not more so, than the character/s themselves.
