Nice progress.

This is only my personal opinion ;)
your bridges looks good, to improve them you can add a drop shadow, that would do some magic. (same with the trees)

Mountains are super nice, pls keep them ;)

For the rivers, you can add a (dark) outer glow to make them "sit or melt" in the landscape, it will get them a more natrual look, rigth now they dont look like they belong. that you can also do with the coast line, but here to only getting the glow on the side towards the sea, you create a new layer (copy) of the outer border line, add a (ligth) outer glow, put the layer between the sea layer and the landarea layer.


your about to have a overall fitted theme, nice work =D>

I think it would look better if there were outlines surrounding the entire rivers, rather than just around the mouth.

it shouldn't? lol

I'm the one that drew the lines and looked at it..
just because it doesn't look like a mess, or busy to you... doesn't mean it doesn't to me.

I'll figure something else out.

I think it's better without the outlines, but the state outline going so far up the river is a little uneven. Erase the outline back to the end of the inlet.

I tried thinner also. thinner would be 1 pixel, and then it looks pixelated..

The sea route is clear now and I like the new bridges. Mountains look best of all.
