That is an awesome shot, but you need to rotate the shot 1 or 2 degrees to get the horizon level.

Most software can do it for you.

and it will be a straight line in the middle of the picture? I really tried to move the horizon line upper or a bit lower, and then straighten , but i didn't like the result.

True... a shot will look better if the horizon is not at the center. If you're a person who likes rules, the "rule of thirds" would apply here. (I'm notusually big on rules, but his one is worth a listen) As for being level, an off-kilter horizon can be very effective, but gemerally with more dramatic angles. A big angle looks like a brave choice... a small angle looks like a mistake.

On the whole, though, you have some very applealing elements in your picture. The off-center sun with the rays of light streaming down towards the center works very well.

Nice shot. A reminder that the photographer is more important than the equipment.

It's true that many landscapes do not work well with horizons in the middle. In the case of this picture, though, with the sun in the upper quadrant and the gorgeous reflection on the water, a center horizon may not be too bad. You probably want to keep both of those elements intact. If I had to choose one or the other, though - and this is simply my admittedly unprofessional opinion - I'd keep the reflection.
