I can't give this a 1 star. You obviously gave some thought to the composition and the shutter speed to get the motion blur. It was on a tripod or you did an amazing job handholding.

I can't go higher than a 2 star. The image appears to be overexposed to me. The super-bright green bush on the right takes away from the image. If it were a little darker that would help. The rocks lose detail and the water loses the water like experience.

I would move the dehaze slider a little, increase the blacks, step down the exposure a little, I would use the brush tool on the rocks and bush in the foreground to darken them up a little and guide the eyes to the waterfall.

thank you for your feedback at the time this photo was taken I didn't have any ND filters and if I had it would be much better, even though it was a beautiful day the water was cold and I didn't have any hiking boots on, I am hoping to go back in the summer and get a much better shot with fewer rocks and more of the waterfall's base. Also, lose the bush.

You might still be able to pick this image up just a bit by recovering some highlights and adding some contrast. It's always nice to have a beautiful place like this accessible to you throughout the year. You get to go back time and again to dial in your image. Hope you post your future images.

I will definitely post my future image of this waterfall
