Jack finds the fountain:

Blackbeard: "You brought him!"
Barbossa: "I'm not afraid of you this far from your ship"
And an overhead shot:
Oh, and if I were to be so lucky as to win, I'd prefer the Mill.

Perhaps you could make the rock of the fountain a bit more edgy as the surface it rather flat now which makes it look a bit like a fake rock.
But outside of that you did a very good job. The lighting is nice and I also like the trees.
Good luck in the contest

PS. I see that some contestants are really pushing the 32x32 rule to the limits.

Yes yes, the fountain is flat and a bit too tall. My main focus for the fountain itself was to get the shape right the way I remembered it, and my first attempt was actually even taller. Because it's only one stud wide, it's hard to add texture and have it be at least remotely solid, but I could probably have added a bit of texture with some headlight bricks. However, I actually like how it turned out, I think the smooth surface of it makes it stand out from the rocky background, and I think it's ok for the fountain to look like the rock has been polished (although a little moss wouldn't have been out of place).

I think comparing this with the Lego original set is senseless, hardly any Lego sets are better than AFOLs' MOCs, either because of unlimited quantity of parts in MOCs (unlike the original sets) or simply greater talent!
Adding some more branches "towards camera" would be a good idea, if you havan't ran out of your leaves
