Only seeing the watermarked version it might be hard to completely tell, but here goes.

Over all I really like this.
Composition is excellent and image quality is very good.

My only suggestion for improvement would be that the mirror seems a bit overexposed and the water a bit under exposed. My guess is the exposure meter on the camera locked in on a bad area maybe. Typically color values in a image file at full white #FFFFFF or full black #000000 should be avoided in photography since those values cannot exist in nature.

4 things you could try next time:
Utilize the exposure lock feature on the camera first pointing only at the water. Then locking in the exposure settings and then recomposing the entire seen with the exposure locked elsewhere.

If your camera doesn't have the exposure lock feature this can be done by switching to manual exposure.

If adjustable, set the camera's light meter to sample a wider area.

If your camera has a exposure bracketing feature maybe shoot then bracket down to taste. (Bracking will lighten and darken the entire scene however so I would recommend trying exposure lock or manual exposure first)

In summary:
The subject matter is interesting and this is really good and worth the price I think.

With any critique, I always like to close with that I critique only out of good will for the artist and that these are only my perceptions and cannot dictate your final vision, only you can do that.

Keep up the good work.
