I like the gold tones and the symmetry, but honestly I am not fond of the colored noise at all. I am not sure how you can get rid of it other than perhaps going to b&w and then tinting it over with your gold tone.

If you don't mind, I'll edit it and show you what I mean.

This is what I mean about the colored noise. There was a lot of red in the reflection.

Love the reflections and the fix. Not an easy shot to do. It seems just a touch soft to my eyes but it still works

First I did it by creating a b&w adjustment layer and tinting it to the same yellow in your image. I used a mask to hide that adjustment from the top portion of the image so that it only affected the reflection at the bottom.

But then I thought about an easier way to get a similar result:

I created a hue/saturation layer and totally desaturated blue/cyan/green/magenta. Then I desaturated red down to -70 and left the yellows alone. That's it.
