Great to see a shot which captures the force of the water without the blur. High ISO setting worked a treat!

It is a nice shot, and also rare to see water not blurred.

I loaded a quick mod, - toned down the highlights in the water, - its still quite a bit overexposed despite the high speed. Try metering off the brightest part of the wter next time, - if the brightness dows not exceed the dynamic range of the camera it might expose better.

How do I meter off the brightest part of the water? I really struggle with exposure and can't quite pin it down to what is over/under exposed to get good shots

If the camera has a spot meter, select it, and place the spot on the bright water; if it doesnt, then either zoom in so the camera is seeing only the water, or get close enough so it sees only water. Assuming you have already selected your aperture, and are in aperture priority mode, the cameras metering system will select the shutter speed; it will flash if you need to increase/decrease aperture and/or ISO, so adjust until the camera is happy. Then go into manual mode, dial in the settings you came up with, compose the shot, and press the shutter. Make sure you check the result, and you can make some adjustments either way.
