Wow! what an improvement since last I looked over here. Looks like you're picking it up quickly and that's great. These guys are awesome for learning from and I'm certainly happy to have found this place.

I'd also straighten the land-end of the dock out so it does not exactly follow the land contour: much more believable I'll bet.
Great improvements!!!! Keep it up!
By the way, I made the dock pattern following the instructions you gave in your Thracioth map walk-through for making the trees pattern. It turned out really great I thought, and never realized I could make something like that. Thanks for the great walkthough!
It's much better, but I was thinking of all the black - even the grouting on the dock itself. You can afford to go quite dark (much darker than you have) but not quite black.
Quick example below (not as good as yours, but to illustrate). In the picture above I have used black for all outlines. In the picture below I have used a very dark blue green for the coastline, a very dark yellow for the edge of the dock and a very dark red for the dock grouting. You can see how the effect is much softer, whereas the black stands out a mile in the picture above and tends to dominate (which is great if that is what you're after).
