Wow… Lot`s of nice colors, like the reflection, but the sky? Looks like you lost some detail there. Overall a very good shot.. :)

Very nice! But I agree with Madman. To have more details in the sky would be even better.

Thank you all for your input. Yea, noticed that one as well but unfortunately I’m not that good with photoshop :( Any suggestion how to darken just the sky area? Thanks.

I took a quick look and a sky replacement is difficult because of the small edges around the top of the trees.
I would suggest if you have the original raw image to see if you can make a copy of it and bring down the exposure 1 or 2 stops to see if any detail is recovered in Light Room or Adobe Raw. If you get anything then you can layer mask it in photoshop with this version and then add a short gradiant to the top so the images merge cleanly.

Thanks Glenn72. As suggested, I played with the masking and exposure, and this is what I got :)

You could use a circular polarizing filter too. It will enhance the blue sky and the green.
