Good effort. I agree with Steve about the green and white being very strong.

The composition also feels a little cramped. Did you use a wide angle?

Hi Craig, It was taken at 18mm on a crop sensor. But I cropped to 4:3 ratio and also had to rotate, which cropped it further.

I guess the blown-out water is something that needs to be right in camera. Also I'll try to hold back on the vibrance in future!

Composition is nice - I think you've blown out the highlights though as the detail in the waterfall has gone. I like the texture on the foreground :)
Yes, the waterfall is gone. You had to do a second exposure for the highlights or try and get it all into one, which would be on a noisy side...

I don't completely agree with the position of the branch. It is cutting you off from the view. Maybe at an angle it would look less commanding.
