A timeless scene has been created in flawless composition. Contrast and color are used to draw the eye toward the proper focal points in the image without sacrificing the photorealism. The lighting appears consistent (not always easy to do in a photomanipulation) with a subtle warmth.

There is one small problem (Don't take it harshly, please.). The reflections of the whales should be displaced more by the ripples of the water. If you look at the bush's reflection, for example, the edges break up quite a bit. The whales' reflections have rather sharp edges, though they should be broken up more since the ripples would be stronger there.

But that's just one thing I noticed that stuck out from this otherwise perfect manip. You've got a well-integrated piece here that really tells a story.

This may help you find a good approach to the reflections: [link]
