@Jerome: very elegant photo!

I think this is a nice example of dynamism created by a diagonal line that Fahim mentioned. The rocky lines lead downwards, but the curved lines seem to flow towards the observer in continuous motion.

Reginald,

I also love to photography waterfalls and they are challenge. So many different opportunities to frame the same scene in a myriad of decisive ways.

You have made some unique choices, like cutting off a feeding part of a major flow to the lower left, yet it works admirably.

Thank you, Asher. Framing is often a dilemma for me still. Sometimes the LCD view seems to have a different effect than watching on the PC monitor. In this case however, I was concentrating more on bringing out the splashing droplets without freezing them or smoothing out the water flow.

Yes, you suceeded! I do not ever choose the milky look although it's a very effective strategem. What you have done still allows for the image to conjure up the thunder and splashing and spray in my face!
