Nice long exposure. The framing of the stream gets the eye to explorer the whole shot. And the balance of greenery and the browns are keeps things interesting. I like this shot.

Nice framing and composition s well s the water in motion. Color (Green) look a bit over saturated though.

Those leaves in the foreground are distracting and unnecessary, plus the image is over-saturated, it hurts my eyes.

Nice long exposure. Mind sharing the shutter speed ? BTW To much saturation in my opinion. The pic is good reduce the composition it will look even better

I was up late last night with this one, and I agree, too much saturation. I'll tone it down when I get the opportunity.

Shutter speed 3.2 seconds, f/8, ISO 100, w/ polarizer.

I also took some darker pics so I can recover some of the blown highlights by blending the two images together in the appropriate areas.

Updated: Alright here is a re-edit (with improved water as well and better exposure):

Like the colors better in the second post. To me, the leaves in the front stop or at least interfere with the viewer eye traveling up the creek.

Alright, your not the only person saying this so I've played around some with cropping and like the new results. Here is one that would fit an 11x14" print. It also helps the photo adhere to the rule of 3rds:
