@Amir: Thanks Amir...
You have a very good point...but you know, that tree was too tall, much taller than it appears. If I included it in the frame, I would have had too much sky and the mountain peaks (my main focus and interest) would have appeared short and obscured by the tree.
Not to mention, I would have had to step back several feet in order to be able to fit the top of the tree without cutting the mountain tip reflection in the water, and that was not possible since the shore turned slightly right behind me and the tall tree would have partially covered the mountain peak on the right.
It is pretty difficult to compose at that location. I would have preferred no tree at all, but I included it, due to the beautiful light that was in the foreground vegetation on the ground.
By the way, this is a merge of 2, and not a crop.
Wonderful landscape !! Stunning colors and beautiful reflections. Wonderful framing and nice light. Have a great week. :)

Beautiful scene, so well composed, Maria!
After reading your reply [above] and looking again, I love how the eye is drawn clockwise from the mountain peaks, around the end of the small lake, to the pines, ending with the tallest one in the foreground, and then to the reflection. Conversely, it also works clockwise.
