This is a great shot! The lighting and fog create an fine image. The people shown in silhouette add a nice point of interest for the scene. The reflection is great giving the shot depth and balance. The overhanging trees add depth and framing for the shot.

I just read your response to Asa about an "error" with white balance, I guess this is one of those cases where error turns out to be just the right thing :) I normally don't like branches coming in the frame from above and not connected to a visible tree, but in this case the composition works very well, I think because the fairly thick branches create a sort of veil that is slowly lifting to reveal a peaceful scene. the colour cast, the mirror-perfect reflections, the crystal-clear sharpnes of the image - all that adds to the feeling of serenity. nice work, my compliments.

This shot is pure magic (for me), a scene reminiscent of ancient Asian gravures.
