Not my usual sort of shot, out of my comfort zone. Any opinions?

Settings used?

The flower pot in the lower right is distracting due to being out of focus (or is that camera shake?)

I like how you blurred the water ... I always like that. I think it could be better perhaps from a lower angle and with flower in focus .... that's what I'd try anyway ... for what's worth.

i'm always a fan of blurred water shots, i think the time exspure could have been a couple seconds longer and sorry but i find that plant to distracting also

Yes definetly a longer exposure needed and clone out the flower pot.

This type of photography screams out for a tripod and long exposures. A neutral density filter will allow you to cut down on the amount of light so as to get longer exposure times.

I agree with Henry. You will need a tripod for long exposure shots like this. Also, it looks like you took this pic on a bright sunny day. The longer exposure time might let in too much light, so a filter as Henry suggested could be a nice tool. Otherwise, shooting early morning or late afternoon is a great time to take pics like this.

The wind may have moved the plant during the exposure causing it to be blurry in the pic.

Great job on your first try! Keep them coming.
