This is a 5-er from me, although I have some qualms to tell, but it surely is a top marks vote. Why? You have created a fully structured by-the-book landscape where you are gradually presenting water (the dynamic element - waves, splashes - is there), earth, plants and sky without too much of anything, they don't disturb each other and your gradient color choices are marvelous. There's even a turtle! You should have more of them btw. The postwork on the shore line paid off good. That's why I vote top marks.
The only thing that's not quite right are the pure black shadows. Place some faint lights here and there to brighten them a bit, or use IBL light if you have a system that can handle longer render times.

Thankkyou for the comment, yes i totally agree about the shadows, i did nothing to them and this is just basic lighting from bryce, the sky is a 2d panel, i tried ibl but could not get the result i was after so left it. some faint lights might work well here thankyou for the tip.
