I like it!
If you would really like good pointers on weak spots, we would need to see your reference material. There is little to say to help you obtain amazing realism without the reference photo. Just to look at the painting it seems to be very pleasant. It seems to have a color book look to it that I like, but don't know if that is what you want.
The sea, the mountains,the sky and the distant boats are beautifully painted! The boat at the foreground is nice too but I am sure you could paint it better. It's much darker in the photo than in your painting. Overall is a nice try though
Seeing the source photo hasn't changed my impression. You did a good job. Considering your time constraints, you did an excellent job.
I think it’s the final touches that will lift this painting. The sun reflecting off the boat is, to my mind, what the original photographer was inspired by. It wouldn’t take much to pop in the warmer, brighter values on the sections of the boat that catch that light.Also the rigging on the boat looks a bit rough- what brush, medium, method are you using to get them in?
