[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Focusing on the rock in the foreground in aperture priority and letting the exposure take care of itself. This long exposure gave me the flowing water effect I was looking for. With very little natural light to work with this turned out a keeper.

Certainly a good try of selective focussing. But, the composition is a bit messy. My eyes first need to go over this OOF bump to get to the sharp and well lit rock. It then start to focus on the nicely touched water feature but then gets drawn to the hot spot on the far back. The OOF trees in the FG also don't help to go to your subject. I would recommend to get close to the rock past the trees and use this rock as a FG element with the water feature filling the rest of the frame.

I quite agree with Niek, the trees are rather distracting and breaks the entire image.Change of composition or you could have cropped the unwanted areas out.
