An interesting experiment, Laszlo, but I'm not sure what you were aiming for.
"Fisszaverődését" translates into English as "reflection", and so you captured the reflection of the sun in the water.
If you had taken a picture of the sun in the sky, it would have been very bright, and so to take its reflection in the water has produced a nice result because it is less bright and can be captured well. I like the way the reflection creates sparkles within the water's surface, and the fact that we can see the rocks beneath the surface.
Do you like the picture? Are you content with the result? Does the image please you? These are important questions because it was your own personal experiment and you need to decide whether or not it was successful.
If I were doing this, I would want there to be something else to focus on, perhaps some water insects or flies, which would sparkle in the light of the sun, or even a little flower at the water's edge. My favourite type of sun/water shots are those where the rays of the sun run across the water in shafts of colourful light, not the sun itself in the water.
I have done a modification where I cropped, maintaining your aspect ratio, but placing the sun's reflection to the left of the frame, because I felt it was a little too central in yours. The crop also uses the elements that you do have to frame the reflection. I then brightened the image because it looked quite dark, and this reveals more detail in the rocks under the water, helping the viewer to understand where the picture was taken and what it is saying, "the sun looks out of the water". I adjusted the contrast and also made the sun more diffused.
I would class this as an abstract type of image, but a natural abstract, taken from nature.
