  2. The softness of the moss & greenery of the pre PP image combined with the crisper water of the PP image would be interesting. Just my personal taste. Thanks for sharing.

    Use a polarizing filter. Will help bring out the detail of the rocks, and provide a couple stops ND to get a little longer shutter speed.

    Out of the 3 images the first is the best. The second looks too oversharpend and the third is more of a cartoon picture. If you had the ability to try the shot again I would probably suggest a smaller aperture so you can get the water to have a smooth silky look and also it would be nice to have the rock in the bottom centre of the image in focus.

    Don't give up, you're off to a good start.

    For this picture I used an aperture of 11 and a shutter speed of 3 seconds to achieve the silky smooth look. The smaller aperture played a part in the effect of the water and also so I could keep most of the frame in focus.
