Not so sure of the mountain range colors, especially on the left. That may turn out to be just my opinion though and it certainly qualifies as nit-picking. The only reason I mention it at all is that the rest is superb. The water is so well done you can almost smell the air.

The colours are different but they are engaging. The horizontals have a calming effect on me. Nice.

The composition is interesting.

You have worked color of the sky into the distant mountains, but to possibly weave a more complete and harmonious color rhythm and thereby unity for the work...it would be advantageous to work some of the warm colors of the mountains more into the foreground rocks (as highlights) and into the cloud structure.

by not doing such, it causes the foreground, middleground, and background to more or less compete like a ping pong match. A simple placement of a few color notes will pull it together I believe more effectively. Otherwise, nice feel to its simplicity and statement.
