Diamond waterfall at the botanical gardens near Soufriere, St. Lucia.
Camera rested on a rock, tried to get as slow as possible shutter speed - Not easy using a point and shoot without many options - I believe I used the landscape option which would have given the small aperture, hence a slower shutter speed (1/4 sec)
Sharpened, saturated, and darkened shadows in PhotoShop.

It's indeed not easy getting longer shutterspeed with a compact camera. Especially this is not the case if the maker did hide all those settings, for aperture and shutterspeed. That's why I'm so glad to have a dSLR now!
But you've maganged to get a nice shot. Good colours and the sharpness is also okay.The composition is fairly nice split in three parts, the bottom, containing rocks, colourful. Good idea to capture that. On the right side the fall and on the left side shadow and some vegetation. I think this i a nice framing.
Maybe you could have left the shadows the way they we're and just decrease highlights a bit, as the waterfall is quite bright. I think decreasing the shadow would give little detail more over there.
Nevertheless good share.
