We have photographs for perfect realism, after all.
My suggestion is that the foreground is a little busy. The marks of the water in the immediate foreground distract attention from the reflection of the egret, IMHO.
There's plenty of busy-ness and mark-marking overall, especially in the background, which is well handled.
A quiet area of tone with only slight variations leading up to the reflection and the egret would be perfectily acceptable, I think.
