I like that there is a fairly rich range of tones in this image. However, the exposure was long enough to lose detail in the highlight areas. I think, perhaps, a shorter exposure would have helped. In another way, too, lessening the exposure would change the jagged shape of the white water in the lower pool.
The composition is not pleasing to me. I think the boulder on the right acts more as a block to the rest of the image than a leading line and I would be tempted to crop it severely. The main feature is very centered making a dynamic subject static. Because of that, I don't think merely cropping would really help in this case...a different angle upon taking the shot probably would.
This also doesn't strike me as a good candidate for horizontal arrangement. The subject and motion are vertical so, in this frame, the water begins from nowhere and flows into the bottom of the frame. The flow is also broken by the rock at the base of the first "landing"...Follow the water down, then stop, look left, continue...see? Broken.
So, overall, there are pleasing tones but some areas seem improperly exposed, the subject has potential but the composition stands in the way of realizing it.
Now that I've offered a harsh critique perhaps some other folks will come along and tell us why I'm wrong. :)
