At what shutter speed do waterfalls stop looking smooth but look better than the bottom version? I went on a waterfall walk and found that in the conditions the waterfalls looked 'messy' unless I used a slow shutter speed.

First one definitely has more eye appeal to my eyeball's taste. And in the frame there is the little falls in the back. Looks like some rugged hiking there. Pretty shot.

The only way to find out is to experiment. Each waterfall shoot is unique, and the appearance of the water will vary based on the velocity of the water, volume, light, reflections, the surface behind the water, and the material sin the water itself (minerals and vegetation). Bring your tripod and ND filter (or 2 or 3) and take a bunch of pics!
