Please leave any critiques of the image! I'm a young photographer still in high school and I would love any type of feedback that will help me become a better photographer! Thank you so much.

You need to get closer to your subject! Your foreground here doenst add anything to the composition and is just distracting. You should always try to simplify your photos.
So the next time you should just focus on the small waterfalls in the middle of your picture maybe with the logs in the foreground.
Technically it seems to be fine.

Thank you so much Mr. Käter, the foreground is definitely distracting. I’ll keep that in mind with my next waterfall shoot. Again thank you for the feedback!

I have a bunch of photos like this from my high school years. I love rocks, so I was always making them the subject, but I think the waterfall really needs to either be the subject or the composition needs to change its relationship to the rest of the image. It's also a bit flat, lighting-wise.

Thank you Mr. Mathiasen for the feedback, in regards to the image being flat lighting wise. What changes would i have to make in photoshop to get the picture to pop a little more?

I agree with Tobias, get closer in to the falls themselves.
