Though I like the shot....and I like waterfall shots, this is ....ummm....boring??? Are you relyiong too much on the waterfall as your subject? If so, it should not be a consequence of the rule of thirds but rather a fundamental focal point within the composition.

This is beautiful Jimmy! I never ever tire of seeing these well-done dreamy waterfall photos, and this one has such pretty lighting and exposure! Great job!

nice work slowing the water down. The highlights of the rocks in the upper left corner are a bit blown though. The crop seems a bit too tight to me also, or else use a thinner frame.

I don't take off points for it, but the thick colored border here takes away from your image in my opinion. Score: 6.

The red leaves set it off, not to mention that cool border!!
