Oh, I love it! I find myself feeling that the composition is a tiny bit unbalanced though. There's a lot going on on the right side, but the left side is quite empty. I wonder if maybe adding one small island somewhere on the left side would balance it a bit?

An island to the left would be a good idea.

I added some kind of fog in the corner, I'd like to know what you think.

Yeah, I think that helps balance out the composition a bit. However the color in the top left happens to match the default selection color almost exactly, to the point where it's very hard to see selected items:

The selection color seems to be darker on my PC (Plasma 5.17.4). I guess this changed in 5.18

I think it should look good now

Some feedback from the judges:
This is a well done and balanced wallpaper. It feels a bit bright in some points and maybe the sea is a bit distracting and I would suggest making the colors more similiar and use more gradients; also, the use of light and shadow seem a bit basic on this wallpaper and could be improved. Also, the edges of the beach seem a bit rough; maybe that could be improved as well.
Just like with Volna, this wallpaper is... just wow this wallpaper looks amazing. It'd what I'd expect from the previous winner. I legitimately can't think of anything to say for this one to improve on, except maybe darken the top-left islands just a tad more for Breeze's selection boxes.

This is nice, but I fear it needs to come with a free pair of sunglasses for many users, or to be used as a default.

Hi, one of the judges with feedback here.

The bright beach and forests provide a lot of contrast with the ocean, which I feel like gives a harmony to the wallpaper that I really enjoy. However, I can't help but feel like something's off-key about the perspective, especially in the water.

:o Looks pretty similar to an island in Cuba:
