I would be personally more attracted to the middle ground, i.e. the trees across the river/pond, with their nice misty silhouettes. I find the foreground branches and trunks too busy and distracting. If I were to include the foreground, I would look to isolate one or two elements only.
I agree with Slobodan. The low contrast, gradual increase of fog from mid ground to background and the mist around the trees is the charm and interest of the image. The black details of the trees and items in the foreground serve to break the mood of the rest of the image. Sometimes it is not necessary to include something in the foreground.
