Like the water movement capture and the tones in this. However the foreground looks a little soft.

you caught the water well, the problem is always juggling with slow enough exposures to enhance the water, with fast enough shutter speed to prevent movement in the leaves and branches,
if im cropping intothe water only, i use 1 to 2 seconds, if i move back to take more of the surroundings and foiliage in, i use 1/4 sec, another tip, i usually burn in the darker areas in between the white of the water very gently to give more contrast without burning out the whites, also when you resize and before saving to web, give it a quick extra sharpen.
its a valient effort though and a waterfall id like to take.

Good first attempt Stuart.
By far the most important thing is use of a tripod. I find I compose the shot and then look for and remove debris, take time and recompose if you wish.
Try and get the water to flow across the image, preferably the water emerges from top left or right ( rule of thirds helps).
I hope my comment helps, send me PM if I can help any more.
