I think it needs more stuff on it... It looks like a lake now- if you remove the connection between the two shores it will look like a bay (I hope this is the right word). You can add some light on the sides to make them look like rocks. Finally I think the reflection of the sun should be stright under it, not right of it. Of course there is no reason to listen me, those are just some ideas, but I think it will become a very nice peace if you work more on it. :)

I agree with Tzax what you could fix: Sun reflection directliy below original. The direction of the waves should be more horizontally. Reflections could be scaled vertically - look at some references to see what I mean. Btw, the sun seems to be a little too blurry to me.
what you could add: Think about lighting just edges towards the sun in those dark areas (buildings/rocks/trees).

that looks good:) the things in the background (stars?) look a lot like lense flares, but they kinda work

maybe you could throw in a moon in there? i think it would look cool with a nice quarter mooon near the water keeping the same yellowish orange colour theme over it
