It is a nice landscape picture, but the shadow in the front bothers me.
Maybe consider an aspect ratio of 4:3 in horizontal orientation which crops away the whole shadow.

Nice shot. I has a little bit of everything. Captures the feeling of the place.

Beautiful shot. The one thing that I'm torn about though is what is your intended subject? Right now my eye is torn between the Waterfall, the mountain, and then the tree in that order. My main focus goes to the waterfall because of the lighter tone, then the mountain due to the size of it, and then the tree almost feels kind of like an afterthought, or a competing element. Beautiful shot though.

I suggest combining wood, mountain and waterfall more expressively by making a square trim. To do this, cut off the top, bottom and right.
Unfortunately, this was filmed in poor light. But color correction can be slightly corrected.

Have you thought of square format for this image? Losing a bit top, bottom and the rh side.

I have but went against it for several reasons

1. Taking off too much of the RH cuts a small section of the river off above the large rock, you can see it more at big res.
2. That sky and the texture of the sky, I like it too much and it gives space above the mountain, taking it in squeezes it all in a bit much
3. Look where the white's end at the bottom - a crop taking off the bottom might cut into that.

It's been carefully thought out

The details are of course important, but in this case, the forest is not visible behind the trees. By keeping the secondary, you lose in the main. Psychologically, the dark bottom draws attention. And there is nothing interesting there. And cropping on the right and top only compensates for the cut from the bottom.

A nice shot. Have you an opportunity to shoot it during the hour just before sunset or after sunrise? This appears to have been taken midday.
