I made many changes to this as I worked, especially to the color palette. I started with 20 colors of all sorts and ended up with only 6.

i really like this! i find it has a very peaceful feeling like i could hear the ocean in the distance of a calm day :D anyways a bit of crit, i think you could have aa'ed the lines that make up the clouds inside the crystal ball's reflection. also i find the reflection of the sun makes the crystal ball look flat, maybe if around the edges of the crystal where the sun is reflected have it warp a bit, other than that i think its amazing :)

Thanks, although I think there's a few others that are good too so  I'd be happy to even get third. :)

Definitely a winner for this challenge! I think yours was the only one I voted for in the end.
