Ah - ship, sky and waves look excellent. The water, however, looks like rock. Water needs transparency > 99 to look wet. The bow splash doesn't look convincing at this angle. Apart from that, this is a very dynamic picture with a good viewing angle.

Alot of things are working well here. I think using terrains aw the water surface is agreat, however water has a different behavior than you present it here. Water waves in the ocean are caused by water currents under the surface and wind cuurrents above. usually, the underwater currects get more powerful with depth, most of the surface disruption is caused by wind currents. you need exceedingly strong winds to create wave crests this high. Next time try to keep the crests lower, it will look mor elike water and less liek a mountain. The bow splash does not work here. You need what looks like drops, not streaks.
