The Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia's most popular tourist attraction, was granted UNESCO World Heritage status in 1979. Located roughly halfway between capital city Zagreb and Zadar on the coast, the lakes are definitely a must-see.
The beauty of the National Park lies in its sixteen lakes, inter-connected by a series of waterfalls, and set in deep woodland populated by deer, bears, wolves, boars and rare bird species. The National Park covers a total area of 300 square kilometres, whilst the lakes join together over a distance of eight kilometres. There's also quite an altitude difference - the highest point is at 1,280m, the lowest at 380m - although the total height difference between the lakes themselves is only 135m. (Veliki Slap, the largest waterfall, is 70m tall.)

The use of long exposure is very good for this waterfall, but I think that the POV and composition could have been better. As I see it (and I'm not an expert) the picture exists only in the lower 2/3rds and the right 2/3rds of the photo. The footpath is, due to the ingredients of the picture, "not visible". The eye that see the waterfall directly goes right with the streem.
Taking photos in such a shaded location always make a burned skies problem, so if possible, it is recommended to keep the sky out of the picture if possible (I'm sure that there are exceptions for that).
I want to say again, that those words are only my opinion and I'm not an expert at all.
