Recently purchase a D400 and am starting out on my photographic journey.
Your comments are invited as this is the only way I will get better... hopefully !

I have tried to blur the motion of the water cascading over the rocks, I wanted a longer exposure to blur the motion even more but the light in the scene would not allow this.

Composition is spot on, all you need to do to get a longer exposure without burnout is use a polarizer filter or use a Nd Filter which will enable you to use a longer shutter speed

I am not sure of you had a tripod/remoye release, or it it is the lens you were using but the foreground is a bit soft in terms of focus.

If you are using long exposures with polerizers and possibly NDs as well you definately need a good sturdy tripod and I'd suggest a remote release as well.

But you clearly have a decent efy for the shot and have started out well.

Keep it up

Thanks for your positive comments. Its nice to hear.
As for the filter, I am looking at the Cokin P and Z filters (both ND Grads and ND) as these should allow me to be a bit more creative with exposure/speed combinations.

turtlec,
I was using a tripod but did not have the cable release with me on this occasion so the softness may be down to slight camera wobble. However, the lens is an older inherited one so I am not sure of its quality.
