For me, all the magic in this shot is in the top 2/3rds. Sky looks great - water looks great.
If you took a wider shot, I'd might consider cropping out the bottom 3rd.
Just a thought - Hope it may help.

I see what Marko is thinking as the lights distract from an otherwise lovely mood-filled landscape. That being said, I feel like the lights add in a human element that give the image a sense of scale as well as tie the landscape in with the humans that live within it. Many landscape photos are just nature but this one feels like it attempts to bridge the worlds of nature and man. Or maybe I'm reading too much into it. Either way, I generally like the image but I'm not 100% sure if your vision is fully realized.
