Hard to give any comment other than you have captured the water spray well. Without any exif data to know the settings I can't comment on this to offer any suggestion as to options with your early experiments.

Direct flash lighting has given a hard and contrasty light and in these circumstances if you consider lighting source. Using a compact camera doesn't give you many options such as being able to bounce the flash to soften the light and minimise harsh light hotspots. Water spray like this back or side lit usually emphasise the water spray and can be quite impressive.

Good to experiment. The best way to learn.

This is all about the water, and the direct flash actually works rather well, giving that shadow behind the water.

I would add one cautiion, using flash with water: any flash unit, however small the batteries are, uses a very high voltage when flashing. (I once shorted the contacts of a flashgun capacitor with the edge of a carving knife: there are two tiny recesses where the Sheffield steel touched the contacts. It was nearly 40 years ago, and i was young. Also rather foolish, and lucky!)

So, be very careful not to let the flashgun get wet, even a built-in one. And just don't put a mains flash unit anywhere near!
