First time I've tried to take photos of moving water. I tried to make the water silkier. I liked the contrast between the color in the rocks and the moving water in the creek. These 2 photos look the same but they have different settings. How did I do? Please let me know what I can do to improve this kind of shot.

Try shooting from a lower position more to the right and aimed back towards the waterfall. This would eliminate the dry rocks in the foreground.
The colors are much better in the first, the rocks have turned blue in the second.

Thanks for the advice. I'll give that a try next time. I was trying to get a decent close up of the rocks and the falls. How did I do with the silkiness of the water? I used my nifty fifty for this shot so my feet had to be my zoom.
