atmospheric perspective = the illusion of distance and the way it's best done is with softer and softer lines and [usually] with lighter and lighter colors as things recede into the distance.
so, the mountains, for example, could look farther away and more grand if their edges were less sharp/crisp/strong compared to everything closer to the viewer.
you've done this with many of the trees, but you should be always thinking of this visual aid/trick in every level of the painting - whatever is in the background - everything in front of it should be sharper and sharper as it builds to the foreground.

Bob Ross painted about 10,000 of those. If this is your first attempt, it was a good first try.
