A new twist on an old cliche. I like the motion going in all directions -- cotrasted against the stillness of the leaf.

The battle of giants. You've achieved a great movement here and thus it's not one of the many soft water shots here

The POV and perspective on this makes it look enormous but in reality it's a small portion of the scene, the leaf gives it away. Subtle. Great image.

Seems a bit too "chocolate box" - maybe this on needed flowing water, not "frozen".

This is a very interesting way to photograph a waterfall. I like that you
decided to zoom in on a portion of the falls and capture the details of that
area instead of encompassing the entire falls and perhaps losing some of the
details that are often overlooked with large picturesque scenes in front of us.

The timing of your shutter speed is great. It gives good sense of motion thru the frame and gives a great sense of flow. The angles created by the rocks and the multiple hues of greens that are with in the frame provide both interest and good depth and composition to your photo. the sharpness is great, I want to reach in and feel the moss and get a feeling of texture from it.

The only thing I might have tried differently is the single leaf in the forground, I would have perhaps changed this with on that perhaps had a different hue. There is so much green within the photo that it feels like it fights for attention. I dont know if this was possible where you shot this, but an idea for the future perhaps.

I am not voting, only commenting. I hope that you have found this comment helpful.
