I really like the colours in the sky and reflected in the water.

This image is very soft, why did you decide to shoot it at such a small aperture? On APSC sized cameras, diffraction severely softens an image at f22, which in this photo causes a large loss of detail on the trees in the right of the image. It almost looks as if you took this at a high ISO, and used some heavy noise reduction there. Why not lower the ISO, shoot at f8/f11 and use a polariser and/or ND filter to get the long exposure? (I assume it was done in order to smoothen out the water.) If you're worried about losing depth-of-field, try compositing different areas of focus together for a sharp, final image (DOF stacking).

Beautiful lighting and composition. I wouldn't mind camping out there for a few nights. =) I love how the yellow wisps of sunlight reflect off the water. Once again nature is supplying us with perfect complimentary colors. Thanks sayorbasu this is going on my desktop right now. Hope to see more from you in the future!

I agree with Joseph that it is soft and could use a little more sharpness. Also, a little more contrast, playing with curves in photoshop will help the areas that you know should be almost black but look more dark grey. In the end however, I'm just very happy you were there at that precise moment in time for this wonderful capture.
