Your islands and your rock cliffs are really great. I love the Palm tree in the foreground. The clouds are also great. I understand that the this is low tide and that is why the ship is high centered but the middleground water isn't quite working for me.... I think I know what it is! There is a pyramid shape in the foregound is where the beach or water should go. If you filled that I think it would help quite a bit. Also any sand texture would help it stand out from the water. This is a fantastic piece.

composition looks great so far.

the ship: with tide it would not stand so straight you should tilt/shift it on 45 or smth like this, because it could not hold itself standing on the beach without water under it.

for that dark sky on the left the water and the beach looks to glossy

the sky and the junglerocks in the bg and on the left bg are looking great so far!

what receptions did you use, i cant find good jungle receptions.

regards juan!

Thanks for the comments guys:) I'm gonna see what I can do about the problems..
One thing, sand is highly reflective.. just look:

but in this case i should have some textures on it to the left yes.. because the reflections of the sky isnt that strong over there..

and for the receptions.. I cant give you my sources but I can give you some locations
new zealand, australia... just search around (it takes time) and you'll find what you'r looking for.. One more thing.. you cant just search on the keyword jungle.. its better when you have a location as a keyword
