I'm always on the fence about photos like this. On the one hand, the colors are captivating and rich. Love the crisp ripples and reflections in the water. On the other hand, it really looks photoshopped. Still, it would make a great poster for someone's wall.
I'm guessing you processed it like this on purpose....but the entire boat is hugely overexposed and lost all detail. Considering that this is where your eye is drawn to (the main focal point), it's not good to have it exposed incorrectly.
Other's may disagree completely, but having a overexposed boat sitting on underexposed water, and against an underexposed tree line really doesn't do it for me.....it just looks like it was processed wrong....but like I said, some people may like that look.
