I like this alot. I wonder if a bit more dark at the top of the sky would help balance the dark water and add to the evening sail feel?

I agree with everyone else.

Very nice. Looks like a strong wind and a bit more billow in the right sail may be in order. Which way is the wind blowing? The sails look like its off the land, but the palm trees look like its off the water (or maybe I need to put on my glasses more often)...I like the whole painting.

Thanks for the comments..
I'm not much of an artist just started painting a few months ago. never had any lessons I just paint and this is the result. I have alot to learn but I just take it one step at a time.
Your comments are very important to me, I think about them while I am painting, I do agree with the movement of the sails It does look like the wind is from the land but the trees look as if its from the water.
I also agree the sky should have been darker or the water maybe a little lighter. But I will learn more with every painting I guess.

Thank you all so much for looking and for your advice.
