1. in what area is critique to be sought?
Lighting and composition
2. what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
a very "peaceful" feeling
3. under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
was out with a happy mood
4. what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
i think that the stone infront is quite extra?

thanks =D

Lighting wise, pretty uniform. Nothing bad, but nothing good too.

Composition wise, the stream flowing out via the bottom right corner is good. But the mini waterfall's right in the middle. Not very effective i feel. Also, maybe just crop away that little bit of sky at the top.

Can be even more peaceful if you use an even slower shutterspeed to smooth out the water.:)

i need to feel the peace.... and the water.... nice veil effect but less of the rocks pls

the camera seemed to be taking a general exposure reading

if possible to re-do I'd suggest using a ND that reduces the light by another 4 to 8 stops .... get up close to the water and plants and expose for the whites of the water

Less rocks, zoom in more to the waterfall. A CPL would help to bring in better contrast and colours and cutting away unwanted reflections

its a nice capture actually.. you just need to work a bit on the processing.. add a bit of drama to the picture to make the image snap and make it more compelling.

I prefer no PP by looking the the above, just me.

Peaceful water should show horizontal flow, not vertical.
