Well i think its very good nice work

Pretty good.  Two suggestions -

1.  Try using less density (in the Density Shader) for your clouds.  I'd say less contrast, but I'm not sure if you might have changed this or the density.  Also, I'd go for fluffier clouds by using Billowed clouds and the Wispy setting.

2.  Try finding a way to texture your stones, even though their shapes look pretty well on their way.
So this is Disney World.  Can we live here?

Yea besides calico's suggestions it very well done keep it up mate :)
The world is round... so you have to use spherical projection.

thanks for the suggestions. i will try as soon i find some time. especally the texture of the stones. about the clouds i'm not sure, what i've done exactly that they look like this. but i think its the density. always play around.

I actually like the clouds.  The rocks I agree could have a bit more interest to them, though.  Your water also looks very nice.  Keep it up!

You have incorporated quite a lot in this. The stones going into the water is good. Maybe some more colour on the stones and sand.

So here is Version 2.
Just added some Textures on the stones and changed the color of the beach.

Good steps in the right direction.

Looking good!  I like what you've added.  The textures on the rock look very nice, but I might recommend a little less white.

This is looking remarkably realistic, although somewhat like a painting (due to low contrast lighting). Rendered in higher quality it would be outstanding I think. Btw I like the surf you've added to the water. :)

This is fantastic. The only to things I can think of is that the clouds seems to bright. It would be great if they where just a little darker in the bottom and some more variation in the sand as pointed out earlier.
I also like your surf on the water.

Thanks for compliments. The surf was done without really knowing that it works. i just put some surface layer ont the water with some slope restrictions.
For the quality: i'm not that rich, so i have to work with the free edition of tg2, which has that restriction for quality and imagesize. But if someone would sponsor me...
