Good exposure time creating the silky flowing of the water. Well done. 8-)

It depends on lighting and the speed of the water flow. You will, generally be starting with a low asa, 200 or so. For many falls, 1/4 sec is a good starting point and then adjust f/stop for correct exposure. This means shutter-priority or manual mode. You can use a neutral density filter if the overall lighting is too bright-- or wait for different lighting conditions. A sturdy tripod is, of course, a requirement. Once correct exposure is determined, take several at different shutter speeds and then determine which you prefer. White balance. I've found, where I live, that the water often looks too blue unless corrected. Check histogram for blown highlights. Good Luck!
