I have to disagree with you on this one. Reflections in the water are always darker than the actual subjects. I think the original is much more realistic. Your edited version is more moody, but not more realistic.
Edited to add another shot with a reflected sky.
No filters or post processing was done to change the reflection or sky in this shot. You can see the reflection of the sky is much darker than the actual sky.
I think that's where a lot of people screw up with neutral density filters when taking water reflected shots. They darken the sky to the point that it ends up darker than the relfection and no longer looks natural or accurate.
