WOW! this is a well balanced composition with saturated colours. You used the available light well and the DOF is perfect. Well done!

Stunning shot Karan, those snow-caped mountains make for the perfect backdrop. It would have been great if the lake had been still to mirror that image. I love the tone of this image. Very well done.
A great shot of a very tranquil scene which almost have that 'I wish I was there' quality to it. I say almost because it looks just a tad too cold for my liking so I'd rather stay where I am in sunny Zululand.
The composition is great giving us a wonderful sense of this fast landscape. If I may suggest however, I think it would have been even more impressive if you showed a bit more of the sky. That would have placed the lake in the bottom 1/3 on the horizontal axis, the mountain range in the middle 1/3 axis, and the sky in the upper 1/3 axis.
One small visible nit is the fact that the water level drops off ±4mm to the right hand side of the photo. Next time you do a landscape with water in the frame I am sure you will pay some due attention to that aspect though. The colour saturation is fine and the details are nice and sharp, but with the shutter speed at 1/750 you obviously had some spare light to play with and I am of the opinion that a smaller aperture (in the region of f/8+) would have nailed the focus even more. Lastly, I think you handled the exposure very well since you had some contrasting light to deal with.
Please note that these suggestions/observations are not done because there are any real negative aspects about this photo. The photo is absolutely great, but I am merely looking at these points that could improve this shot even more.
Great work and TFS.

I really like this picture and can only add that I agree wholeheartedly with all of teh above comments. You have handled the light and dark contrast really well and have produced a lovely picture. A little more of the sky woudl also have helped not to have chopped the cloud off as well...

A very eerie looking scene, the unclear horizon makes the whole water look spooky for some reason. Very well taken.

This is a beautiful and arty view.
I like the cobalt like colours and the simetry line, nice effect.
