This will be from a photographer's perspective. The color of the sky should be closer to that which is being reflected in the water. Because both the foreground leaves and the background leaves are in focus it's unclear where you want the focus to be. Foreground objects traditionally would use up a corner rather than being in the middle of the frame edge, so that they help break up the rectangular-ness and possibly cover up real world things that would detract from the image. The reflections of the vertical trunks should be as affected by the water ripples as the leaves are. Those are notations, not criticisms. I like the image and think your decisions to balance a reality versus impressionistic are good. One last thought: The saturation in colors is nicely balanced between "post card overdone" and too true to the real world; however, there is usually a noticeable difference between the saturation of the real object and that of the reflected object.

I will be looking for more work that you might share!
