Beautiful colours and light, I like the river that takes you into the pic.

it is a beautiful image but as you have sent it to the critique gallery i must say that there is an unnatural color cast in this image. as you have exposed for the sky the foreground land became dark. always consult in camera histogram for this kind of situation. there is a lot of data at the left side of the histogram resulting an underexposure but the right side contains comparitively very low data as well as there is a small gap at the right side of the histogram. you can adjust +/- EV for proper exposure and you can take several shots till you are satisfied with the result.

i have uploaded a modification here and adjusted levels to the best of my ability and shifted the unnatural color cast.

Hope you like it,

nice composition and intersting subject and i like the way the water leads in to the house, but i agree with Somnath, the colour caste is probably to do with the colour balance on the day. probably best to go back to raw and try the different white balance presets and i thing you would get a result thats not so lilac in caste. ( or maybe you forgot to convert from rgb to srgb before upload.)
i also feel that a lot of the image is dark and i thing it probably needs to be fairly dark but i would be tempted to lighten up the overall feel a little in curves.

might have been nice if the water came to the extreme left of frame too to tighten the composition a little.

nice shot though, just a bit more post processing to bring out the best it has to offer.
