Now, it's like your island is placed on a sheet. I can't make you a drawing, but imagine a sheet, and get your eyesight near the sheet, the.perspective looks alike this way.

That make me think a lot of SNES's Mode 7 If you know what's tat.

Yeah, I need to find a way to fix that, but I can't meddle with the top petal too much due to it's purpose... but is the overall thing better than before?

Yes, it seems better, but you should try editing the left  petal. Its perspective is still off the archipel's. It should take a similar perspective than the right one.

In my humble opinion, it's like the left leaf is closer to the top one than the right is and it looks a bit off, but the perspective looks correct, now, if you want to use this archpiel in a flat ocean, not a sphere one.
Try to lower a little bit the left petal, and it should be better.
If you want to use it on a planet, you should try to edit your archipel to looking like HarveyDentMustDie's version.

That's another problem - I can't decide which one, but I think I might have to do this one flat. XP

But in the case of flatness:

Added another waterfall and some cities and tried to fix the weird center tilt - everything looking right? :3

The furthest leaf's placement is inconsistent with the rest of the design. It appears to be 3x or 4x as far away from the base of the mountain as the rest of the leaves. To be consistent it would be in there so deep, it'd be just about completely obscured by the mountain itself.

I feel like the mountain itself is a bit out of perspective and you should see it from slightly more above then right now.
