For someone who is new, I think this is very good. Maybe put some dark green details or shadows in the leaves of the palm trees. Keep up the good work. :)

I agree, this is pretty good for a beginner. I would perhaps add some spots of white along the darker blue to make it look like the sunlight is glinting off the beginnings of waves.

I'd recommend looking at a lot of pictures and things in real life to 'train' yourself to see things as light and shadow, this will help you. Also looking at references to see how things behave.

No, not really bad for a beginner. Now, my suggestion is to make that horizon line straight and level, especially when detailing water. Another is to study aerial perspective. Usually the distant objects, (in this case the water), are lighter then get darker as they come forward. Hope this was of some help.
