Good for novice but I think the lake have to be a litle bit flat because the water will pour out from picture! Congratulations Novice!

This seems to be a very tranquil scene.
It gives us a wonderful sense of this fast landscape. If I may suggest however, I think it would have been even more impressive if you did not compose it as a portrait. With a landscape composition you could have placed the lake in the bottom 1/3 on the horizontal axis, the land in the middle 1/3 axis, and the sky in the upper 1/3 axis.
You should also be careful when photographing water. It is important that the water line is level. In this picture the water level drops off ±5mm 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, even with the slow shutter speed of 1/40. I am of the opinion that you should have used a higher ISO (640) and a smaller aperture (in the region of f/8+). This would have nailed the focus even more.
Please note that these comments are done to assit you in improving your photographic skills. The photo is absolutely great, but I am merely looking at these points that could improve this shot even more.
I am looking forward to more pictures from you and TFS.
