hey, the concept is cool , although you have to think in some points here
first of all your horizon line is visible and so it rules the perspective in every object, so please first start drawing some vanishing point lines and follow them as a ruler, and thus all your perspective will be ok, now the perspective is off in all the elements,
another impoprtant thing is light, I see you have a big sun maybe? in the center of the image but al the objects are lit from the right so are there 2 suns?
aerial perspective is a must , it helps you with scale and depth, in this case everything look sflat, I don;t know how far is the island or from the lake and so,you need aerial perspective as well, you need to add some imperfection to the image like in the 3rd image where you show some zoom to the details it is too perfect, the lilnes are too sharp, I can almost detect the pixels , add some blur to the edges, just like in a real photograph you will see there's no hard lines they always have some blur even if it is very minimal
you can find some cool tutorial of all the points I made in my comment in this matte painting forum
keep it up !
