Hi! The only issue I see so far is that the scale of the waves is too big to not
look off, relatively to the rest of the scene. If you do want such big waves
exactly where they are, then another layer of smaller scaled ones might fix it?
(these may be oriented differently in nature). I love the different texture from
bottom to top of castle walls.
