Nice light and good composition has produced a tranquil photo; it would be worth rotating the image a couple of degrees clockwise to bring the horizon level.
Best wishes

Hi Steve, thank you for the appreciation.
About the rotation you are right for the horizon (I even would expect that the left part was higher than the right one). But if I rotate the photo the masts of the boats are no more vertical. I think it can depend on the shape of the coast of the lake. One of these day I want to go there and check it.
Ciao
Piero

Thank you Ole for your comment. The lake is very often peaceful. I just documented how the evening was.

horizon level

My suggestion concerning horizon level :
If there is a reflecting water surface as in your foto - it is rather easy to determine if the foto is in the right horizontal level !
Connect two coresponding points (i.e. the real mast top and its reflection in the water) with a "line" ! If this line is parallel to the frame left or right) the picture is leveled right !
