To capture a scene I had visited earlier in the year, I returned hoping the leaves would be golden with Autumn. Instead I found them still a brilliant green flecked with yellow and oranges underfoot. The usually gentle stream was a raging torrent of muddy water, hampering the composition I had in mind, so i settled on this one with the amazing Beech tree placed on a third.

Nice image. good general composition. The trees look very good to me, just the right amount of light coming through. What i don't like is the stream/river. . If your going for the popular smoothed out water look I think you need a few more rocks showing.
It would have been interesting to have seen the same composition with shorter exposures to catch details of the water.
Just my view, see what other people think,

OK. A decent creamy water image with nice settng but nothing in there to give it that lift from competant to excellent.

Its a competent shot. Making black = black and removing the greem tint improves the contrast.

Im not sure about that rock in the lower left, looks awkward from a composition POV, so uploaded some options in mods.

Your aim was obviously to produce milky water because no further effort went into the composition. In that you have succeeded but I much prefer to see running water. With such shots, like pathways in the woods some centre of attention is needed to help focus the viewers' eyes.
