Well, I already notice the straight shoreline in the photo...might add a rock or a log there.. and the lower corner rocks aren't very defined..

I agree, you might want more detail in the foreground.
You might reconsider having the clouds swooping upwards matching the stone arch. I think the combination of the stone arch feature with the clouds moving upwards pull the eye out of the painting.

I don't have a problem with the shoreline; it's how a shoreline would look and is believable. The composition works for me. You might consider adding some darker values in the big rock on the right. I think your values are too similar - they don't contrast enough. I love your painting and the style in which you painted it. Kudos to you. But I think if you added some darker values in the rock, the viewers eye would see more depth and it would add much visual interest. Perhaps the same color you have at the bottom right of your painting. I like the water as it comes up onto the shore.

I like the piece myself. I agree with Jenncb maybe push the values a bit more to create more depth.
