Yeah, personally I think your images are a bit "overcooked" for my tastes. But at least for now, it seems to be your thing. At least you have a style. And it's not like you don't know what you're doing. Your images clearly don't look like that due to accident, you're obviously making deliberate decisions to get your images to look exactly how you want them to look.
So, if that's your style, I say go for it. If you're working intelligently and working with intent, then just stay true to your vision and learn how to make it work for you. Don't try to be something that you're not, realize who you are and then find out how to keep taking advantage of that.
Having said that, don't shrug off your critics. Because this kind of style isn't gonna work for everything. That style isn't generally to my tastes, but I don't think there's inherently anything wrong with it and it certainly has its place. But sometimes it's just not what the image needs. If it ain't working then it ain't working.
