very nice, though again, reduce the wave scale/roughness of the water...this would add to the realism!

Very nice work!
Great atmospherices and lighting :)

I only have 2 suggestions now at the moment + one minor:

The specularity is a bit disturbing IMO, I'd reduce the reflectivity and increase the roughness to soften en spread it out a bit more. I'd certainly reduce it, it's too strong for these kind of lighting conditions I think.

The wave scales of the water are rather large. The atmosphere of the image almost "requires" dead calm water, at least with very tiny waves.

Minor suggestion is to increase the atmo-samples in your final render to remove more grain (you can see it in the atmo itself a bit, but mostly in the objects).
I guess you used something like 100 samples already?

Keep up the great work!

Cheers,
Martin

That looks fantastic! The only thing that could be improved (imho) is the roughness of the water. It looks like a stream. Apart from that it's beautiful!

They are each beautiful, and your work is impressive.  Love this last one.  Excellent lighting!  Linda

The last one is very very good!

80% finished you said :) I hope the last 20% will be:

10% for reducing the water scales and roughness (I would make it near flat)
10% for strongly reducing the highlights and increasing the spread to make it more softer.

Great work so far!

Looking great though - the foliage is superb - as is the lighting - keep going :)
