I did this as a test using a mordor terrain for water, this is the first time i have tried this, The very nice ship model was made by jedswindells and downloaded from renderosity.com, I was surprised by how much longer the render time was by using a terrain for water (7 hours ), then again my pc is not very fast. The water texture is one of David's from B7 Pro.
Good start, the wave at left is a bit high. Under this light, the water material was not the best choice. Remember, water is transparent and also has specularity. Materials change considerably under the light. The sky would have been nicer if you've switched on the star field. The model is very nice. I think this scene has potential, perhaps you spend some more time on it.

Thanks Horo, yes it definatley needs more work, i was going to render it with TA, but the 2 day render time kind of put me off.
