I like your mood but check your perspective and scale. Keep working you will get there.. good luck.

nice work,
I think the perspective of the ships are a little out...

Like the 2 previous notes, the problem here is the perspective. The tone and mood is really nice, but you are basically looking down on the ships, but they are very close to the horizon, so you would be looking straight on rather than down. Also, repeating an element like that is very obvious--make some sort of change to you don't instantly know it is the same ship just repeated.
Your castle also needs to have the perspective flattened--you are looking up on it, which is right, but since this is a very wide scene, the upward scope of the perspective would be less.
Hope that helps! It is looking good!
