This isn't a bad shot. It just needs a little help!
The original's a bit flat so I've increased the brightness and contrast, vibrance and exposure (just slightly).
Then I made some adjustments using the shadows/highlights tool and finally de-saturated the greens.
Finally, I've straightened it.
The waterfall's a bit central. To have been able to capture it from a bit of an angle from one side would have improved the composition but for all that, I still rather like it!

Just my opinion, hope this helps.


Edit: Sorry Mike, welcome to epz. it's good to see you're uploading to the "Critique Gallery". You'll get plenty of honest, worthwhile advice in here.

Yes, seen similar one before. It needs to be a little more contrasty to give impact and it's not really sharp enough. At f11 you probanly needed a tripod and camera movement is evident as there is no sharp plane, which would indicate a focusing error.

f5.6 would have been adequate here. Not too keen on the dead tree as last time.

Agreeing with Paul - I think aperture priority is probably not the best choice for hand held photography. I think you want to set the shutter speed according to your focal length in order to gain a full sharp image. You may also need to alter the ISO rating in order to help you achieve this. Having said this your subject matter often calls for a slow shutter speed to capture the really movement of the water over the waterfall - perhaps somehwere around 10th of a second to 2 seconds depending on the finish you require. So a tripod is a must in these circumstances. Steve.
