The waterfall at Virginia Waters, Surrey. Photo is an additive composite mode shot comprising (I think) 8 shots to simulate an ND filter's effect on the water. I'm not sure about the number of exposures because I was terminating the run when the image was exposed properly.
Today, I learnt two things from your shot. 1) There is a composite interval mode, which you have made very effective use of, and 2) there is a waterfall at Virginia Waters.

Very nicely done. I had a similar reaction to a few others when I first saw it, regarding the stick/branches to the right. It took me away from the water effect.

Frame it.
Done.

Often people over analyze a photo/artwork.

I like this. Nothing to report here!

Nicely done, I can imagine how much work went into that.

This is the critique section so analyzing it seems reasonable. Unlike others my mind papered over the sticks until someone pointed them out,. Looking back at it the little mini cascade seems like the star of the picture so I probably would have cropped tighter around it and maybe left out more of the bottom of the image. Then again it is a really nice image as is and nature does what nature does with putting sticks into your framing.

i think half a stop brighter would be better.

Very nice. Apart from being overwhelming with the sheer amount of waterfall effect in the scene, I find this a most appealing image.

Nice pic. But somehow those little sticks on the bottom and this small part of tree on the right does not look good. I think you should show more of this or not show at all. There's enough of it to distract, but not enought to be part of image.
Also, whole image looks almost B&W. I think it might look better with more saturation given to moss. But that requires testing, hard to say for sure.

Excellent work. Composites do have the potential for weirdness, but here everything comes out beautifully. Would leave it as it is, even with the branches and twigs. For me, they add a sense of reality, give the eye more detail to explore, and save the image from looking too boringly fine-artsy.

The "black/white works also great!

I see more and more do this, and i think it mostly looks better than long expocure.

Almost amounts to a reason not to do it. Couldn't resist kidding. Even with things that are becoming a bit clichd, you get away with a lot as long as it well executed. And the OP's image is definitely well-executed, better in fact than many examples I have seen. It's a beautiful image, no doubt.
