I'm not a fan of selective desat, but putting that aside while grading today. Instead, I'm grading overall composition and whether i feel like the item that is colored draws my interest or if i feel like it pulls my interest away from something else that i find more personally meaningful in the picture.

For this picture, the green moss looks a bit alien against the grey of the rocks. It doesn't seem as alive as green things usually look. So loss of some points there from me.

Overall composition of the shot is okay, the water is coming into the frame in a location that feels a bit jarring, perhaps due to not seeing the top of the fall in frame.
