That dead tree at the bottom is super distracting, but I'm not sure you can do much about that. A PhotoShop wiz could take care of it probably. But other than that, I like the shot and I don't really think cropping out the bottom part with the tree would work, but you can try it. Brilliant colors and sharpness. Good shot.
To me, the little lakes in the bottom-center are too surreal. The color doesn't seem accurate enough to be 'real'. Makes me feel like the saturation was hiked up in photoshop, which is fine, but the lakes' color is hurting the photo for me. Otherwise i like it. Maybe play with cropping it to give in a more semi-panorama feel?
