Defiantly worth the time, excellent piece. No nitpicking from me on this, looks good ^^

I think it's been really worth the hours spent. Very nice render. I like the mist too, and the play of the different hill reflections in the water. If it renders so fast you can easily try some adjustments.
1. Soft reflections may indeed be interesting; use a reflective shader after the water shader (turn off reflections there) and set it to 0.004 to start with. If you go higher, you may need to increase quality. A little patchy wave action could be nice, just some whisps fo wind across the lake, use the patchiness in the water shader for that, you can test distribution of waves if you set the waves extremely rough temporarily.
2. I agree about the big tree, just a tad too obtrusive, IMHO. Either replace it by a thinner (green) tree (birch?), or move it to the right, so it sits in a grassy patch.
3. I would also look at the vegetation among the trees on the right far hillside; they seem a bit lighting up, so maybe too much translucency.
4. Also, increase Enviro light a bit to get a bit more light in the shadow parts (1.25 or so might work enough).

You might try turning off reflection entirely in the Water shader and adding a Reflection shader after it and use Ray traced soft shadows for softened reflections....I'd be tempted to add a small amount of wave action as well.

Interesting, what are the benefits of doing this ? Improved quality ?

yup. it improves the believe-ability of the water IMHO...Dune turned me on to this I do believe...a source of many great tips in my time here.

I don't have much to nitpick here. This is really well done. At first I thought the water was too flat as well, but then you would not want to destroy the zen-like atmosphere this exudes. Possibly some animal life, like waterfowl?

I think i would be more comfortable adding some animals in post. A good suggestion for sure ! Thank you :)
