Nicely exposed. Try a polarizer as well to control/change the reflections in the water as well. I often use one instead of an ND filter to slow exposure a bit.

A very pleasant curve in your composition, and the water has a nice amount of blur, though that can be a very personal choice.
Looking at the histogram in Photoshop, you can bring the black point towards the right till it meets the base of the main bulk of the histogram as there are no true blacks here and this would boost the contrast to give some 'pop'.
There is a magenta cast to this, most clearly seen in the water at the left hand side.
So, a little tweak, It can take a few goes when you start processing RAW files but the results will be worth it.
Rather than waiting till tomorrow you can make your changes and upload a variant with this one - you'll find the facility under the Options button above.

Thanks for the comments, much appreciated. I find I get stuck in editing in RAW trying to get the best edit and going round in circles! I have kept it simple and taken your advice Keith, and moved the blacks to the right in the levels editing in PSE 11 and added a variant. Thanks and again for the advice.

No problem Tony.
Just taken a look at V2, much better.
Problem is, when you start tweaking it'll eat up hours of your time Smile
