This is such a highly subjective image...and a necessary one for overall learning aobut the correction process...
Let's take the Lake step by Step....

Step 1 Shadow / Highlight / Neutral...
Notice the smaller shots...the fisherman has a red net...and the temple is visible in the shadows....

Try to re-create the curve and neutral settings I have placed; and play with the L curve in LAB a bit. 
There is so much shape and tonality in the image it is an interesting exercise just for that reason...

Step 2 adjust the saturation...only add enough to make it look good for you.  There is a lot of range here but too much color makes it look like a splotchy painting...
