    Overall it's really good. I'm always envious of the guys who make the nice first maps. (you should have seen some of my first attempts). I do have a couple of suggestions for you.
    1.An outline around your landmasses would help them "pop" a bit more.
    2. Your rivers look a bit like "rope" laid across the top of your land you could try a "bevel" filter on them. Also rivers at this scale would be about the same color as the shallower parts of your oceans (this is not technically realistic but it is a pleasing visual effect)

    Your mountains and other terrain features look great. Are you planning on labeling this? Either way its a great first map.

    Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.
