Good heavens, this project has grown so much since it started! I very much like the way those mountain ridges turned out, Rahl. You might not be very confident when it comes to digital image processing, but you have the craftsmanship of a real professional. I'm sure that, if you would ever throw yourself completely at the digital world, you'd be a massively good digital map maker in no time.
Until that time though, I would like to compliment you again on this map. It's amazing.
EDIT:Another question: that language you're using, which is it? Is the fact that I'm asking this clear proof of my linguistic insignificance, or is it a conlang? It looks impressive in any case!

Come pay me a visit on my blog!
The latest map is looking great! Love the mountains, though I agree with someone else who pointed out the similarities between the coast & river lines. Maybe if you add a light watercolour effect to the coast & water it might help?
Might have to try something similar... I started drawing maps ages ago byhand and think I might have lost a bit of the personal touch by going all digital. Used to love drawing over pencil coastlines in ink!
As for the language yes it is a conlang. It's my own creation called Helisinar which if you look at my previously posted finished map Ædorn Drësirasar the language comes from Helisinas. It's my own version of an Elven Language.
The northern portion of the continent is like a Germanic type dialect Muundet'n.
