The actual flow of the water has been very well captured in this long exposure - but your framing of it, your composition, lacks finesse I think; there's a discomforting sense of a tilted horizon, but only partially so, so that the viewer is simply discomforted, rather than forced to change their point of view. Placing the waterfall so centrally in frame is also quite weak - the eye is constantly drawn to areas other than what ought surely to be your point pf interest. And finally, there's a blue colour cast to the whole thing, which makes it seem firstly washed out and lacking the drama of light, and secondly, not completely under your control.

Waterfall looks gorgeous. You've composed a very nice soft focus on this scene. I might have cropped out a bit on each side to bring the falls in a bit.

seems a bit on the blurry side for me

The whole image is OOF.

a beautiful waterfall made even moreso by your good use of the slow shutter...looks like difficult light to work with

Wow, this almost looks like a painting... was it naturally that way or edited to that effect? Very neat.

Interesting effect produced by the backlighting - unusual.

This has a painting-like quality.

This would have worked well in the soft focus challenge also. Nice shot.

A good image. The waterfall is great, the overall scene is pleasant and not too overpowering.

I really like the sunshine and the effect of the water.

Nicely colored.
