For me
I think it is a lovely composition, I like the way you have the curves of the fence and canal wall coming from the bottom left and the eyes flow into the image from here, rest on the boats and buildings and then explore the rest of the image but I do think it is either slightly too much contrast or over saturated, cant make my mind up which or both.

Lovely picture. It's got a 3d feel to the clouds and trees.
Nice compsition but the contrast/saturation does seem a bit over.
Is it processed HDR?

I really like area with the boats moored in the background and the sky, but the fence at the front is ugly and the buildings/fence on the far left are unattractive too. Even so, the composition is really good.

Great tones in the clouds, and I love the subtle colours in the landscape and the reflections. I do find the boats to be a little soft though, and the fence doesn't do much for me - have you tried cropping it out entirely?

Advice taken, toned down contrast & saturation croped with a bit of cloning.
