Can you tell I've bought the Cloud City tutorial? This uses the same materials, thought most of the objects are built by me. Sky is not origonal, it came with the cloud city set. I used a lightdome for the city and lots of additional lighting to make the water look like water. No sun is used.
That's excellent, my only suggestion would be to try out a little gamma compression to bring in a bit of contrast here and there. Water look almost like murcury, but that's good too - I've seen it like that.

Don't know that flying city tut, but I like what you've done. The dynamic of the sea wave is very good, the appearance is, as David put it, mercury-like. Maybe David is again right about the gamma compression. On the other hand, so near to a rough sea, there might be a lot of humidity in the air and this is nicely shown here. My qualms rest with the flying things. Aren't tey too big, or are they so near? Anyway, good work.
