No I don,t think you have crop it too much if anything maybe an additional crop to the bottom it will re balance the shot for me.
Other wise very well done.

its tricky, I can see that you've maybe tried to get the same amount of the building in both directions, but possibly a tighter crop on the reflection may have balanced the image more ? Still a great image tho m8

A very nice scene. It needs a clockwise rotation, not a lot, as it leaning backwards slightly. Its nice to get the entire chimney reflection in, though it would be nice to see more space at the top and bottom to be a little less cramped, - but it works.

Using the window frames as a reference for white, the mod, which is rotated, shows a different colour balance. There some cloning in done to make up for the rotation.

Otherwise nice clean image of a lovely scene.

Like they said-- a stunning image! Just for fun I did a quick and dirty convert to b&w, and it does rather change the atmosphere!

Willie's Mod has addressed the problem of the tilt. Just remember that a reflection will always drop straight down from its subject, whatever angle it is viewed from.

Clear Nice picture. If you think you cropped it a lot is because you may be feeling guilty of taking of some more blue skies/water maybe?

I'd cut even more to make a square format out of it, crop only from the right, the building seen there doesn't have a window on its back wall facing us. The crop would have left a small portion of this auxiliary building and would display the mill towards one side of the square frame. I hope you would like this version also.

Nice image. I think I might go even further and crop more off the bottom. I know that chops the reflection, but that is already very slightly the case. I think a more landscape format would balance better, and the loss of reflection is not an issue.
