Congratulations on your high score and top 10 Larry! This has gorgeous colors. One minor suggestion: I think it could use some edge sharpening around the tree and peninsula. But that might also be achieved by reducing fringing by color noise reduction (do a gaussian blur on a copy of the layer, then change blend to color, and adjust opacity to suit.)

Fabulous colors and lovely composition. So peaceful ...
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I don't usually like over-saturation, but this works for me. It is almost abstract with the broad strokes of color and the siloette. I like this a lot.

good luck
