Sometime a go it was pointed out to me on one of my photos that the best way to ensure that the horizon is straight when it is not actually visible and you have a peak reflected in water, is that the top of the actual peak and the reflected top of the same peak in the reflection should be able to be joined by a perpendicular line (exactly vertical). But becuase of the UWA lens it is not possible in this picture.

The grasses are dark in the foreground becuase we were in shade at the time... I have lightened them slightly using the layers and masks.... but maybe not enough?

As for the saturated reflection, this is something I have seen in a lot of other pictures as well... It is apparently something to do with the water acting as a polariser as well... I guess it is something that I will have to live with becuase it is a natural event.

The area that you are looking at is (almost) totally uninhabited, almost totally in that there is a residence not far from the loch edge and then there is actually another one up a dirt track hidden in the forest some miles up the glen... but for all intents and purposes there are less people there than you can fit in a small car!
