The scene was there so it's all in the exposure and with as much that is represented here that is a challenge. I think exposing for the non reflected (top) part of the scene should take priority and in the image the rock face on the left is overexposed taking the green trees with it to a degree. Naturally, the reflected image risks underexposure but I think you still had some leeway there. Did you do some bracketing with this shot to increase your options? You might also delve into HDR technique for these types of exposures.

Packrat suggestions are good. Contrast between reflected image and seems a little strange. A little more contrast or clarity in the top image might be better.

Overall a good and pleasing shot. I love reflections and this one is very good.
