MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
Should I tone down the dark bits in the foreground?

I personally wouldn't tone them down. If it looked like you were going for all out realism, I might suggest making the ripples a bit thinner, and to overlap more, but it seems you're going for a more stylised composition, so it looks fine. I love the handling of the large wash areas, I know that's not easy to do in acrylics without getting tide marks (or maybe that's just me!)
I like it.

Great painting. I think making the boats a bit darker, sharper will bring them a bit more forward, they look as fainted as background rocks.

You have a nice painting here. Its weakest point, for me, is the composition, and I think toning down the darks would help that.
I'd also give the sky more variety. I guess you can find yellow in a sunset, but such a large uniform area seems a little incorrect to me.
The boats, especially the one on the left, are sensitively rendered. Also the water between them. It would be nice if the overall composition complemented and supported them.
