It's a nice idea and reflections are always a good bet for some thing interesting. I do like the symmetrical arrangement of land and mirror image, and I like the way you've caught the faint ripple in the water so the edge of the reflections is broken up a bit.

I'm not so keen on the big splodge of bright sunlight top left and I think that's caused one or two other problems. The sun even though it's behind a cloud has fooled the meter into thinking there's loads of light so it's left your main subject a bit gloomy (it probably was as well that day!) So what could you try? One thing might be to take the same shot a bit earlier in the day with the sun a bit lower. The light usually make things more interesting then. With this image, you could play with the contrast and saturation controls in whatever software you use - I find I have to boost the contrast in the shadows on nearly every digital picture I take.

Hope this helps a bit - best of luck!
