Looks kind of cool - I like the style. The only thing that gets me is that the rivers are almost neon-bright. :) Not saying to change them but they do distract my eye from the city details a bit.

And the map itself seems dark, but it could just be my gamma challenged notebook ;)

I would expect water flow within the limits of a walled town to normally be a bit more controlled. Letting the streams meander might seem like a nice idea when considering how your town looks when it gets painted, a real draw for the tourist trade, but when the hard rains come, you'll wish the water was running down man-made channels with raised banks and planned drainage, instead of flooding your street and ruining your rug.
