This was really meant to just be an experiment in tiled water rather than SNOT because I often find that working SNOT water into a MOC can be tricky, especially with a large dio, and it makes moving for photography even trickier. Tiled water works great IMO and I don't know why people don't use it more often.

The rest of your MOC is nicely done. I like the waves (cheesies ) splashing against the rocks. The broken jetty is cool too.
The houses are nice as well, along the old cannon.
A suggestion would be to make a campfire on the spot where the poor soldier stands.

because I have not enough tiles!!! but you're right, moving a moc to photography it with "snot" water is a pain.. on my PTV entry I put it on a "plegiglass" blue plate , like this :
but even with this, when I had to move it, the sea just kept "separating" from the shore, and it was attached!

I totally agree with Guss on this point! I think it's easier (at least with my pieces) to make a large water area in snot way rather than to tile it.
But I have to say that your MOC is really well done, and if I had to do a little water area in the future, I will think to your MOC for sur!
I really like it, and especially the water border: the little wave, the different use of blue tile and the rocks!

I really love the broken-down dock, and the little shacks at the back. Good work with the water as well.
I also find that I don't really have sufficient blue tiles to make large expanses of water. The SNOT style allows big bricks to be used, thus covering larger areas with few pieces.

I think SNOT is more realistic but tiling is less fragile so it can be transported much easier.
