This is nicely composed, Brian, with the rocks framing the waterfall, and the water offset in the frame. Lots of texture, and smooth silky water. A lot of people like the effect that a slow shutter speed gives to water, creating a soft, flowing effect of the water while all the other elements in the scene stay nice and sharp.
The light falling onto the water is perfect. You obviously know what you are doing and how to achieve what you set out to do.
It's unusual to see a waterfall within a cave, so it's quite a refreshing change, and you've made the most of the attractive rock formations, adding depth by including the foreground part on the left. I would have expected the rocks untouched by the light to be darker, but you have managed to get good light throughout.

Several members have posted comments on your past uploads, but have not heard back from you.
It would be helpful if you could give a short response to those comments just so that we know we are pitching our critique at the right level and providing you with the sort of feedback that you require, which should then tend to cover the areas that you are hoping to improve upon.
It could be assumed that, since you continue to upload to the Critique Gallery, you are happy with the response, but a few words from you can make all the difference to the critiquer, who will never know.

Thanks for very kind critique. I've only recently joined ephotozine and have returned back to photography over the last 9 months after many years of just point and shoot with compact cameras. I will ensure in the future I respond to comments but I'm still finding my way around ephotozine so please bear with me Smile I would also like to thank others how have commented on my photos and I am finding it a great help.

Kind Regards, Brian.
