Thanks for the votes and the top 10, but to be honest, I really have no idea what you all saw in this. I was figuring it would finish somewhere between 5.5 and 5.7.

Obviously very nice, I have a similar shot, but when photo and water comes together we have to drag the shutter right? The corners could darker. In photoshop you could try a lassoo and make a more natural vignette. Select what you would want to be the center of attention, in this case I would choose the leafs and where the water impacts on whatever it hits, then draw a "spikey circle" around it (imagine a star with way to many arms). Then feather it somewhere between 180 and 255 depending on how graded you want you vignette to be. Now you have a smoother "circle". Open a curves layer, invert its mask and darken your curves layer. Now you should have a very natural looking vignette.
