Well you have achieved you wish and produced a perfect representation of the landscape of the lake. I would have lifted the camera an inch higher so you did not have the stub at the bottom or even crop that away. Good reflection and good sky. I would like to get this in luminosity mask just to pull back the bright sky. Nice natural shot.   Posted: 06/15/2022 10:30:36

Very nice place to visit and still very similar with my hometown.
Since you are asking for suggestion, I'd like to crop out the right side to make it looks like a new place. Because the right side looks like the previous one and its lines are perpendicular with the left side, and thus might making readers hard to focus. But if only focus on the left side, it's somewhat gloomy instead of as peaceful as the right side. But I like the reflection of the trees and sky in the water.
Hope you would not hate the left side   Posted: 06/15/2022 17:22:57

Nice capture of the setting. I'd suggest cropping the foreground to crop out out the small stump on the right side foreground, as well as something else that's sticking out of the water to the left of that. I'm not great at editing skies, so I don't have specific suggestions about how to do that, but I'd recommend editing the sky so that it has more detail.   Posted: 06/15/2022 21:57:11

A landscape picture that represents the situation on the spot well and brings harmony into the picture with the reflection of the trees in the water. I think masking can be used to accentuate parts of the image. I would try to highlight the bark of the trees and accentuate the sky better with contrast. For the green, the saturation could be reduced a bit.   Posted: 06/19/2022 03:39:23
